Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel is a simple wood framed 100 year old structure that was remodeled to infuse it with light, warm materials, improved comfort and elegance. The building was once a military barrack, a bowling alley and a machine shop before it was fashioned in to a chapel quite a number of years ago. The project’s task was to bring it back to its original beauty, improve the lighting and acoustics, install new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems and to make an addition to provide office spaces for the Campus Ministry department.
Wood harvested from an old tree on site was used to build the altar and religious furnishings. The offices for the Campus Ministry were built as an addition connected by a glassy public space while outside, a new contemplative garden was created providing a place for the campus community for prayer and quiet reflection.
