Designed by EskewDumezRipple—a New Orleans-based architecture, planning and interior design firm—the project was designed as a quiet refuge and intimate sanctuary for sacred reflection and contemplation and serves as a quiet, sculptural addition to the landscape.

The result is a delicately-placed, quiet counterpoint to the adjacent church, contrasting in scale but similar in form and material. The tall, angled shape of the chapel ties the building to its neighbor and creates a soaring space for worshippers within. The sculpted form is carefully carved on two sides and at the roof, allowing light to leak in from above the ceiling, along the floor, and adjacent to the sacred tabernacle.

The space’s power is enhanced by its simplicity—the sculpted volume of white planes is activated throughout the day as the sun washes across the surfaces from different angles. Even the Christian cross, adjacent to the tabernacle, is expressed by grazing light rather than an additional component in the space.

The project, which has earned several accolades and awards since its completion, will receive special recognition during the annual AIA National Convention, to be held this year in Las Vegas, Nevada in June.
