Community Chapel

Mendoza is considered to be a deprived place in the periphery of Montevideo.
The new chapel is conceived as a potential symbol or identity factor, lacking at present. It is intended to create a intimate and cozy atmosphere, as well as a place of sharing for the neighbourhood congregation.
Classic church tipologic elements are refloated: atrium, belfry and central nave. Wooden surfaces and wide glass plans are combined to generate an simple and warm interior space, while nature is a landcape to contemplate from it.
