Temporary Chapel by Local Architecture

During the renovation of a historic building, including the community’s main chapel, Local Architecture suggested building a temporary chapel to accommodate religious worship during the 18 month construction period.

Local Architecture, in collaboration with Hani Buri and Yves Weinand, developed a structure using timber panels. Built directly on the ground, the new chapel blends subtly and delicately with the landscape. The folded volume generates a wide horizontal space at the entrance, before closing in and rising up to become vertical towards the centre of the chapel.
