Gallery: Puckapunyal Memorial Chapel Moves Visitors With an Inspiring P...

Provided with a brief to create a contemporary chapel that accommodated multiple religions, BVN Architecture designed this stunning Puckapunyal (pron: puck-uh-pun-yool) Military Area Memorial Chapel in Australia. The sustainably-designed project features a glazed pavilion prayer room that is screened by metal panels featuring cut outs of a field of poppies. Three large circular light shafts dapple light onto the Flanders Field Poem displayed on a courtyard wall. Three further internal courtyards have been incorporated into the building to provide privacy for the various religious denominations that use the space.

    The combination of natural and artificial light in the chapel itself is exquisite, and letting the natural light throughout the rest of the space create lighter and darker areas is very effective.
