Cohen Chapel

Discipline: Architecture

This chapel blends into the rugged surrounding landscape. The search for light is the concept that defines its form. The interior space of the chapel was created to be closed to the landscape, becoming an introspective space. By contrast, the sacristy opens up to the landscape, creating not only a meditation room, but also a contemplation space.
