Nicholas Burns - Chapel and Meditation Room

Author(s): Michael Tawa

australian architecture | architecture monographs | A.mag

The second book in the ?a.mag Long Collection? reveals a very special project in a highly sensitive way. Australian architect Nicholas Burns designed a chapel and meditation room for a private client that stands on a hillside of an estate in northern Portugal, overlooking denser urbanisation and green hills. The snaking granite path leading to the chapel awakens all of the senses ? of time, the seasons, and place. The building?s sinuous, naked concrete form sits between giant boulders and trees; a gilded wooden altar is dramatically illuminated within. According to Burns, these are the elemental things that are important in order for people to feel naturally deeper within themselves.
