The goal for this chapel was to create a calm, intimate space for prayer and meditation within a major hospital facility. Due to its proximity to the drop-off area the chapel walls were designed to provide sound and visual privacy. A large skylight floods the space with daylight, and allows views to the sky. A spider glass system, selected to eliminate mullions and enhance the views to the circular geometry of the supporting architecture, is suspended from the structure, presenting the illusion of a floating glass plane.
