CCV Chapel

Tagaytay, Philippines
Chapel for a non-profit organization

The Chapel marks the entry to the Foundation’s campus. It needed to be at once open and accessible, and capable of being closed for security. Our response is a simple pavilion created out of a single line that folds back on itself: an open and accessible structure in which the play of form, light and shadow creates an appropriate space for gathering and contemplation. The building has no HVAC and no glazing. The chapel is an elemental building: a simple sheltered enclosure, made from one material, and porous to the weather.
