A Space of Pure White Frames the Coastal Scenery Beyond
Situated along the coastline, this white chapel impresses everybody with its marvelous and eye-catching appearance. The inspiration behind the design of the church ceiling comes from the honeycomb-like lines demonstrated by the AP700 model of the renowned car brand Lamborghini. The lining patterns of the ceiling match perfectly with the lighting effect, resulting in an amazing layered effect and make the design extraordinarily fashionable.

Chapels normally present a strong sense of purity and harmony. For this reason, the designer chooses pure white as its major tone, and makes appropriate use of simple lines and transparent glass in the design to highlight the tranquil and grand atmosphere of the chapel. The huge French Window not only serves to enhance the overall sense of transparency, but also draws in the scenery of sea and sky integration from the outside, bringing forth a romantic and relaxing sensation inside the building.
After the pool was filled with water, the chapel looks as if it is slowly emerging from the middle of the pool. The smooth water surface magically reflects the exact image of the building, displaying different visual effects with the changing scenery day and night. At the same time, with its coastal location and the refraction of lights, the chapel seems like a castle in the air in the distance at times.
On top of this, the designer skillfully hides the air-conditioning system and the light troughs of the building. Without anything redundant from the inside to the outside, the entire design was made simple and pure, creating a flawless and snowy chapel.
