If most chapels has an ornate and sometimes classic design, this chapel by Gerhard Sacher from Sacher.Locicero.Architectes is different in many ways. Stands on the middle of grassland in Zollfeld, Austria, with the views of Magdalensberg hill and the Hochosterwitz castle, this chapel looks like a building from the other world. The minimalist and clean design remind us that we need to have a pure and simple life. The glass wall shows the simple bronze cross outside, a clever way to minimize the redundant elements. I would love to pray inside this chapel, that would be an amazing experience, especially with the peaceful atmosphere.
