CHAPEL FOR OUR LADY OF FATIMA

 

 

LOCATION : Cayey, Puerto Rico

 

PROJECT YEAR : 2016

 

Faith and spirituality inspired two siblings to revere Our Lady of Fatima by commissioning the design of a small chapel at their countryside retreat in the hilly region of Jajome in Cayey, Puerto Rico. The gravel paved driveway acts as a sensory filter, where cool breezes rustle the trees, giving its visitors a hushed welcome, immediately setting the stage for a quiet retreat and the start of a very personal introspective experience. Surrounded by old oak trees, the chapel is located on a hillside just off the driveway midway between the entry gate and the house. Good accessibility without need of stairs or extensive ramps was of keen interest to the clients, for this reason, the chapel was located just far enough from both to create a sense of privacy without the feeling of complete isolation.
