The Chapel of Saint Albert the Great

Simpson and Brown Architects

The new Chapel for The Order of Preachers, the Dominican Order is situated in the garden of one of the original George square townhouses. The new garden chapel is conceived as a space for peace and worship.

The building form and choice of materials were carefully considered for their contribution to a calm, peaceful space to connect the building to its natural setting. There is, in the structure, a feeling of a certain drama. The Cor-ten ‘trees’ are both functional and sculptural. The external finish on the roof is sedum, connecting the building to its garden setting and reducing visual intrusion from above.
