Award Winning Nascimento Chapel

Miguel Pinto Guimaraes Shares The Nascimento Chapel

Miguel Pinto Guimaraes, the architect of the displayed project Chapel by Miguel Pinto Guimaraes spells out, The Nascimento Chapel is located in a private property at the mountains of Rio de Janeiro. Taking advantage of the topography, a lake was created, so that the construction could hover over it and also works as a mirror for the architecture. Its facade, doubled by reflection, defines the very same curve of its floor plan. The project is based on 3 elements. 4 m wide bridge flies over the water pond. At the end of this bridge a glass box defines the enclosed space. Enveloping this whole set, 25 rectangular steel frames function as brise soleils that bring shade and privacy to the prayer space..
