Award Winning Saint Francis Chapel Room of Meditation

Rafael Hintersteiner Portrays The Saint Francis Chapel Room of Meditation

Rafael Hintersteiner, the author of the highlighted project Room of meditation by Rafael Hintersteiner demonstrates, The Saint Francis Chapel does not meet the conventional principles of the design of a chapel. It is a small cubic room inviting to pause for a moment of remembrance. The relationship with nature associated with Saint Francis is not what the design of the chapel shall convey, but it is the simplicity and openness, the reduction to elementariness and the restraint of symbolism. A room of meditation was created: a room of possibilities which is open for everyone. The open ceiling shall guide the view beyond the everyday. Small candle niches link to the traditional mysticism in this sparse room. .
