The Chapel is part of larger-scale intervention, the new headquarters for the social charity institution Padre Rubinos in La Coruna, donated by the Amancio Ortega Foundation.
Both an attraction and a symbol within the complex, it becomes a completely different space from the other buildings. Evidenced by clearly recognizable elements as the bell tower and a gateway on a different scale and materials used. The entrance becomes a journey that takes us from a secluded, warm space to a magnified space which enhances the symbolism of the place. It descends back to human scale by the horizontal line, represented by the wooden baseboard that embraces and comforts us, closer to ground, more human, while only using the vertical and light in that which is most divine.
A vertical plane, illuminated by the cross that is separated from the rest and illuminates it... creating a calm and serene space for meditation and spirituality.
