Chapel in the Flinthills, Kansas
Student project



The design intent of a non denominational chapel was to engage the public into a spiritual quest, wherever their faith may lead. The chapel sits slightly off the crown of a hill, allowing the hill to remain for the public use. The form serves as a beacon or a lighthouse of hope for all users. Once inside, one experiences layer upon layer of enclosure until one reaches the heart, the inner vestibule, or the quiet room of peace. There one can pray, feel safe and intimate with the surroundings, the land and the greater force.
