For this wedding chapel in Niigata, Japan, Eriko Kasahara created a white clean space ispired to the wedding veil with a series of interconnected pipes.
In designing the St. Voile Chapel along the Shinano River Kamitokoro, Niigata-city, Eriko Kasahara focused on keeping balance with the existing main building for wedding.
The design concept is a “wedding veil”, translated into a clean space that surrounds the holy ceremony and dance blessing two people.
The veil is represented by a structure of pipes, indipendent from the one of the skeleton: when we look up, several pieces of cloth seems to dance in a ceiling flutteringly, catching the light from the ceiling.
