OBJECTIVE

The objective of this project was to design a chapel, located in the Farmingdale State Campus. The newly designed chapel should consist of 3 chapels, a main lobby, all of which should adhere to the manipulation of natural light in architecture. Additionally the chapel will consist of 6 office spaces for additional functional use. The purpose of this project is to properly orient chapels to effectively diffuse light into the interior spaces

PRIOR TO OUR FINAL DESIGNS WE UTILIZED REAL WORLD MATERIALS AND ENVIRONMENTS TO MIMIC OUR VISION AND UNDERSTAND HOW TO MANIPULATE LIGHT

IN THESE 3 PHOTOS WE OBSERVED HOW THE SAME ELEMENTS VARY DEPENDING ON TIME OF DAY AND LOCATION OF THE SUN

PRE-LIMINARY DESIGN ON CAMPUS

EVENING

 This specific location on the campus is empty and allows for a large space to be filled in by the chapel. This location captures the suns angles in a way where each chapel can be separately lit, depending on the type of day. As this is an open plan layout of a church, each light intrusion will be seen throughout the entire chapel. The offices are of minimal use and are considered to be used for functionality therefore are not included in the chapel scheme.

CHOOSING THIS LOCATION WAS IMPORTANT AS THEIR WOULD BE NO OBSTRUCTIONS TO THE SUN ENTERING THE CHAPEL. THE SW,S,AND SE ENTRANCE OF THE SUN INTO THE CHAPEL WILL HELP THE ELEMTENTS IN THE CHAPEL EFFECTIVELY DIFFUSE INTO THE INTERIOR AND ENCAPSULATE THE PROJECT GOAL OF FORM LIGHT.
