The journey of a stable to a chapel; the story of this little building.

Embedded deep in a beautiful landscape, itself shaped during the last ice age, this chapel embodies a peaceful and inspirational atmosphere.

The harmonious, timeless furniture, crafted from pure oak, reflects the building’s woodland environment. Behind the altar a unique piece of art shimmers softly in the light. This creation of transparent coloured slides drifts gently with every breath or movement in the room; making tangible the presence of those around it.

The baptismal font is a unique, handmade piece of golden copper. At the lip of the font the metal curves, folding in on itself and giving a sense of protection and encirclement. The delicate creation of this chapel offers an ethereal peace, and a haven in a modern world.
