Los Nogales School’s Chapel

Is conceived based on human life’s dualities. A pure and elemental prism represents the pureness, the essential and the harmony. The various volumes and cracks that this prism suffers represent the spiritual sense in human lives, therefore harmony's alterations.

The prism order is juxtaposed with these alterations that generate light cracks on the elevations, allusion to hope and opportunity in a life of darkness. The dimness take place, as a place for quietness and prayer; the search for the interior self. Dualism also happens when the chapel opens itself to gather a major number of assistants; the lineal traditional axis of the interior becomes the transverse one, altar changes to chorus, and Christian traditional symbolism suffer a metamorphosis just by opening two huge doors facing a wide public space. This changes the chapel dramatically, from one that can gather 100 assistants to another capable for almost 2000, distorting the scale of the building itself, and making invisible the edge between interior and exterior. In fact the site’s composition is the result of a detailed study, composed by the chapel’s prism and the loose belfry element, which works as a symbolic landmark. The ochre concrete and the natural wood reflect brightness and nobility, mixed with texture and grain, surround by the tranquility of the subtle water pond and the trees.
