Níall McLaughlin, Bishop Edward King Chapel in Cuddeson (England)

 
The London studio Niall McLaughlin built the new Bishop Edward King Chapel with the idea of respecting the surroundings: a beech grove and 19th-century buildings belonging to the Ripon Theological College of Cuddesdon, an English village nine kilometers from Oxford. The building replaces the old chapel with a main elliptical space. Opening at the top with a row of windows, the outer wall is made of small sand-colored stone blocks that create a zigzagging texture. The wooden cladding of the interior has a warming effect that creates the intimacy ideal for prayer, with branched columns forming an inner wall.
