Nascimento Chapel
by Miguel Pinto Guimaraes

  • Awarded April 15, 2019
  • CLIENT: Miguel Pinto Guimarães Arquitetos Associados

The Nascimento Chapel is located in a private property at the mountains of Rio de Janeiro. Taking advantage of the topography, a lake was created, so that the construction could hover over it and also works as a mirror for the architecture. Its facade, doubled by reflection, defines the very same curve of its floor plan. The project is based on 3 elements. 4 m wide bridge flies over the water pond. At the end of this bridge a glass box defines the enclosed space. Enveloping this whole set, 25 rectangular steel frames function as brise soleils that bring shade and privacy to the prayer space.
