Wooden chapel
A chapel with a primitive shape among vineyards, lagoons and hills. Simple and austere architecture

The MAPA architecture studio designs a chapel integrated into the landscape in Sacromonte, Spain. An architecture that blends with the environment taking the sensory experience of nature to a whole new level.

Within the landscape of antique intensity and new impulses is the Sacromonte Chapel, among vineyards, lagoons, hills and refuges, merging with the surrounding environment. The architecture is a fusion between weight and lightness, presence and appearance, technology and nature.

Wooden chapel

Two sheets of wooden slabs rest on each other without touching one another, sanctifying a small portion of the landscape. The chapel is prefabricated in Portugal and then transported to the site to be assembled in one day.
