FAMILY CHAPEL
BUILDING DETAILS
Year: 2011
Site: Cemetery, Gambellara, Vicenza
Client: Private
Service required: plan and supervision of works

The project aims to achieve an intimate and welcoming place and at the same time open thanks to some cut-shots on the world around it, especially the vineyards of the surrounding hills.
Not only the landscape and the sky creep inside the chapel, but the light helps to create strong emotions and games of references. Details become a pretext to enter into the composition of symbolic elements such as gates and doors, made as crosses and votive lamps (steel discs set into the marble recall the lightness - the fragility of existence). Nature also finds room inside with a flowerbed that hosts a maple located next to a sitting, creating a micro-site devoted to meditation and prayer. The chapel completely covered in Botticino marble becomes the area of contrasts: light - shade, exterior - interior, culture - nature, earthing life - spiritual life.
