Farnocchia Chapel / Grazzini Tonazzini + Giorgia Colombo Architetto
Textual content description supplied by the architects. The development of a small chapel arises from the need to offer a brand new recognizable landmark inside the mountain village of Farnocchia. From the skin, the archetypal pyramid-shaped kind reinterprets the normal components of the world, particularly the previous triangular huts that when characterised the area.
The doorway, emphasised by a slim passage, is filtered by a stone block carved as a staircase, which aspires to recall a contained monumentality and harmoniously coexists with the intimacy of the area. Inside, the dimly lit surroundings is enlivened by a candle and a skylight, by way of which gentle, rain, and wind can enter.
The construction is made up of a framework clad with uncooked picket planks. The development is the results of a participatory constructing course of for the group of Farnocchia.
