In the beginning of the year 2009 e|348 Arquitectura were commissioned for the Project of a Chapel honoring Santa Ana, in a small, triangular piece of land, in Sousanil, Santa Maria da Feira.
Visiting the site, they noticed that the given location of the Chapel was in the intersection of five streets/roads, and at the bottom corner of an ascending topography. They noticed also that this topographic condition was the perfect “stage” for celebrating Santa Ana’s festivities, occurring in July 26th every year, as locals already do.
The amphitheatre shape of the site, allows exterior mass celebration were everyone has optimal visibility conditions, promoting their participation in the ceremonies.
