The beach chapel in Shanwei

On the south coast of China, in Shanwei, on a beach that is not easy to imagine if you think of China, stands the Jingting Bay chapel designed by O-office Architects.

A coastal landmark that seems to rise from the waves and sinuously reach the sky. A pure white element relates to the city skyline by comparing itself in height, but completely different.

From the outside it is certainly recognizable, but it is from the inside that this volume offers the visitor the best experience.
