1916 Centenary Chapel

Dublin, Ireland

Our approach is to let the architecture create a presence that is at once spiritual and non-denominational, complementing the existing monument rather than becoming one, to form a civic space, in harmony with its surroundings, for commemoration and celebration.

The chapel will celebrate life using the interplay of light and shadow to create a living architecture. Standing in the main chapel building, visitors will experience an abstracted immersive space with a warmer, golden toned light being filtered through the skylight to give a sense at once uplifting and comforting. This is juxtaposed to the main materiality of the buildings which utilizes the naturally occurring local stone.
