泪之礼拜堂是第五届Festival des cabanes的获奖作品，坐落在Saint- Ferréol的山岭中，不远处便是UNESCO认证的世界遗产Annecy湖。溪流从屋旁缓缓流过，一条林中小径指引着Cascade de Fontany的方向。
The Chapel of tears has been included in the 5th edition of the “Festival des cabanes” and it is situated in Saint- Ferréol, a place near lake Annecy, which is an UNESCO world heritage site. It is settled on the side of a stream, along the nature trail that leads to the Cascade de Fontany.

The wooden project has been constructed by the designers themselves along with the help of some volunteers. Atelier poem think the building with the aim of maximizing the use of economic resources, complying with sizing constraints imposed by the announcement and using only one material, wood. Adopting this simplicity and in this primary context as a starting point, the project site gives shape to the architecture, while forming a close bond between built and organic nature. The building, designed as a lay meditation chapel, finds its own dimension in this dialogue with nature, like a new point of view opening toward the waterfall. Upon approaching, visitors go through a sensory experience, trying to find their own way to familiarize themselves with the chapel, interacting with the space and the contrast of lights and shadows.

The chapel looks like a high and narrow parallelepiped, which is cut lengthwise at the middle section, as if the stream had eroded the matter during its course. This is a 20 cm thick cut that runs through the entire covering and joins the two openings, which are placed on the short sides. These last are aligned, respectively serving as the front door and a window that frames the view of the waterfall. The long sides, which are parallel to the creek, are blind and punctuated by a scan of wood elements of different thickness. The interior space is left open, exposed to weather changes and some light effects amplified by a sequence of panels placed on the roof.

The construction has been made entirely of spruce wood – the planks and the strips are naturally cured and were supplied by a local sawmill, using commercial thicknesses and sizes. The outer shell consists of burnt wooden boards and contrasts chromatically with the interior space where the material is left natural. The specific wood burning technique that is used in this project, and practiced in the area, allows to preserve it over time from atmospheric and natural agents. In this way, it remains stable, durable and hydrophobic, in a totally natural and ecological form, without changing its own internal structure.
