We are designing a rustic mountain chapel for a family in conjunction with the design of their custom mountain home. Tucked in a quiet corner of their property in the woods, it will be a place for them to escape the usual distractions and pray quietly, either alone or in a small group.
Several options were presented, with a few of them shown here. Stone and wood are the main materials on the exterior and interior, along with rustic arched timber trusses, beams and/or rafter accents. A central wood window with cross shaped mullions overlooks a spectacular rock outcropping. Some of the options include window bench seats and clerestory windows.
