Laguna Chapel: Recycled timber church and community center

The project rebuilds a church in an old lumber town on a lagoon. Wood from the original chapel and other buildings is recycled to erect a modular structure adapted to local timber construction. Respecting the site, the new church and community center define a square for public use, including cultural and educational programs that complement religious activities. The building ensemble uses passive ventilation; rainwater collection; and polluted water from the lagoon is cleaned.
