Religious, Trujillo Alto 2011

    This building was a design build proposal which involved the demolition of an existing church facility in Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico, characterized for numerous non-compliant interventions over the years and that was rapidly deteriorating. The project consisted of a long-lasting cast in place, exposed concrete structure of approximately 4,000sqft with custom-designed contemporary corten steel walls and doors for the church, which could completely open the space to take advantage of the pleasant weather and tropical condition of cross ventilation. The incorporation of natural and artificial light is of great importance in creating a deep reverential and spiritual atmosphere, that this type of architecture usually calls for.
