Dst Chapel / Nuno Ferreira Capa | arquitectura e design
Text description provided by the architects. Inserted in Teresa Gonçalves Garden of the Dst Group, in Braga, Portugal, Capela rests on the ground as a place for reflection and natural surrounding contemplation.
The two volumes of concrete are interrupted by an incision, a free crossing, separating the divine spot from the human seat, not touching each other.
Inside, both plans are inhabited in a quiet way. One by a bench for contemplation and the other by a suspended cross of Christ.
At night, the beam of light, flowing through the opening and by the Uglass ends, transforms these concrete blocks into a light matter.
