Architecture studio O-office Architects has placed a sweeping, bright white chapel on a beachfront in China to serve as a "spiritual and figurative anchor" on the coastline.
Located in the city of Shanwei, a historic fishing settlement in southern China, the chapel takes the shape of a swooping structure that is oriented toward the sea.
The Seaside Chapel of Jinting Bay is triangular in plan, and comprises a wide linear axis at the entrance and a tall vertical axis facing the beachfront.
The vertical sea-facing elevation and the horizontal land-facing elevation are joined by three swooping curved planes that function as the chapel's exterior walls and roof.
"The inspiration behind this seaside chapel is the coastline of the Jinting Bay –part of the South China Sea, and the Matsu Culture of this region," O-office Architects told Dezeen. "The tension between the newly constructed, generic skyscrapers blocks that sprawled along the coastline and the sceneries of natural serenity."
"We tried to examine and create this new 'totem of the sea' with a parallel perspective of history as we receive the commission to design a place of ceremonial worship, emphasising and terminating the central axis of this emerging city along the seaside."
The entrance to the chapel, which faces inland, spreads horizontally across the site and obscures the view toward the beach. It is accessed via a 36-metre-long paved walkway that bisects a shallow pond.
The curved exterior walls that flank the chapel guide visitors from the wide, linear entrance toward the narrowing and vertically extending rear.
