Mexican chapel

The chapel building was designed for a beautiful Mexican colonial garden that caters to weddings. It is located in the town of Cuernavaca, a one hour drive south of Mexico City. Since it lacked a chapel, previous weddings all took place under a light canvas canopy roof. Cuernavaca, “the city of eternal spring”, has become a very popular destination for couples from Mexico City. Its’ warm climate, relative proximity to the big city and beautiful gardens, make it a perfect wedding destination.

This Mexico City design studio is a young architectural and design firm established in 2004 (all of the principals are under 30). Esteban Suarez, Jorge Arteaga and Santiago Becerra met while studying architecture at university, worked in different jobs after graduating, and then teamed up with graphic designer Sebastian Suarez, (Esteban´s brother), to form Bunker Arquitectura. The architecture firm’s first office space was located in a windowless basement, (an actual bunker), in the foundations of a building; hence, the name.
