The central idea for the chapel was a dynamic space that interacted with the courtyard outside to provide a spiritual experience involving light and the abundant nature around the site. Natural materials such as stone, exposed wood beams and ceiling, and a clay tile floor enhance the relationship with the courtyard. The courtyard also provides separation and privacy from the surrounding neighborhood. The design allows for the seating to function in several different configurations around a speaker. Offices, a classroom and an outdoor deck were also parts of the program.
