Carrier Johnson and Culture used the Holy Trinity as a driver behind the design of this Chapel. Everything from the prayer nooks to the stained glass windows are in multiples of three. Components found in the space both large and small, inside and outside, are situated to face the cross in the center of the structure.
The ceiling element consisting of 38 individually hanging redwood and alder modules takes inspiration from the crown of thorns that Jesus wore during his crucifixion.
Six 10' stained glass windows and one 25' stained glass window were salvaged from the old Prescott Chapel and re-purposed in the exterior garden areas as partition walls.
The large 14' tall cross at the heart of the space is made of reclaimed oak and stainless steel and stands proud in front of an alter made of hickory and walnut.
The overall material pallet of wood and corten steel were chosen to blend seamlessly into the earth tones of the board form concrete.
