Cohen Chapel

Joaquim Portela

Architecture, Building and Structure Design Cohen Chapel by Joaquim Portela A Chapel in Switzerland, that integrates the landscape, becoming part of it. The search of the light is the concept behind the volume form. The interior space of the chapel was created to be closed towards the landscape, becoming a space of introspection. In opposite, the sacristy opens up to the landscape creating not only a meditation room, but also a contemplative space. There is a crack in everything that´s how the light gets in Cohen.
