Project Description

The Thorncrown Chapel is a woodland sanctuary of exposed light wood frame rising forty-eight feet into the Ozark sky. Inspired by the light-filled gothic church Sainte Chappelle in Paris, the chapel consists of 425 windows and over 6,000 square feet of glass. Light and shadows infiltrate the sanctuary throughout the day, reflecting the surrounding forest and allowing the chapel to blend seamlessly with the environment.
