Description


The intervention strategy results on the insertion of a Chapel at the Seminary of St. James.

It is a volume released into the antechamber of the Seminar which takes for its centrality.

The design of this project-”body” wants this to be a unique structure, balanced and visible, making a piece with this exceptional presence within the building.

After outlining the vision of the sacred space that surrounds this body, we look for a proposal to absorb the religious character of the set, creating spaces and environments that promote a spirit of inwardness, reflection and retreat thus maintaining the same language.
