Chapel

This chapel is designed to hold a small congregation in a semi-rural area of Northeastern Ohio. The structure is situated on the bank of a reservoir, carving deep into the mass of a small peninsula and extending beyond the shoreline, out over the water.

The building’s form is a metaphorical representation of prayer — the heavy concrete walls represent the physical body and the more delicate structure within represents the spirit. Uncontained by the physical realm, the spirit escapes the body and floats above the shimmering surface of the water.
