The chapel is an oval wooden space that opens upward and natural light spills from the edges of the ceiling. There are simple benches on smooth concrete floor. It's peaceful and silent as no sounds enter from the outside and the wood absorbs sounds within....More

Beautiful both inside and outside. A place to sit and maybe meditate or say a silent prayer. Preferably to go without kids.

Architectural oddity in heart of shopping district and well worth taking a few minutes out to sample the peace within this wooden ark.

Free entrance, a very comfortable, peaceful place where you can sit and relax for a while. Please remember to be quiet and respect others 😊

This is a great concept. No preferred denomination. My wife and I arent actually religious but this offered a nice place to be pensive and calm in the middle of a bustling city.
