A project of a religious nature regularly seeks an intimate spiritual connection, if it is an individual user; and in the case of a community, the functions focus on commemorating a celebration. This common operation requires creating a versatile and almost plastically simple concept; in which the leading role lies in its users and that being or image of the connection. The connection between a user towards this superior being is regularly based on vertical orientation and it is here where the layout of the project meets these objectives.
The chapel is an amenity to the Villas La Escondida hotel complex, located in a town called La Garza, Chiapas; an area focused mostly on agronomy. the religious project seeks to create a very direct connection with its users, based on a 500-meter pedestrian route; The main intention for the Chapel to be located at this distance lies in the experience of the journey towards the same piece. “that is in sight, but not at hand”, leaving a space for intimacy and privacy between the user and the superior being.
Maintenance in these areas may require a lot of attention, which is why the walls of the chapel separate from the ground and are barely joined by the altarpiece, they are not even joined by a tangible cover, that is, a glass dome allows passage of natural light that is degraded until it does not drastically affect the floor, which in turn absorbs this natural light, due to its dark tone with the benefit of being easy to clean and does not require treatment.
