La Estancia Chapel

La Estancia Wedding Gardens were conceived in a traditional Mexican baroque colonial style. When one of Bunkers associates decided to marry here it was made known to us that the owners had been toying for some time with the idea of building a chapel in the same style as their gardens, since all previous weddings took place under a light canvas canopy roof. They found very romantic the idea of an architect designing the chapel he would marry in so the commission was granted to us.

The client brief was pretty simple: a colonial-style closed-wall masonry chapel that blended with the surrounding architecture. This deeply troubled us First of all we did not believe in styles and second, it would he a shame to close the chapel to the surrounding beautiful garden. So we decided to do the complete opposite: an open glass chapel that contrasted with its surroundings.
