Project details:

Completed in 2009, this contemporary design has been elegantly constructed in traditional materials to provide a functional and spacious building with a design based on simplicity and proportions to create the visual interest in keeping with the simple nature of the spiritual life of its inhabitants.

The building consists of 31 bedrooms arranged around an internal garden. Internally the plan is simple with direct views into the internal garden and landscape beyond, framed by the chapel elliptical form on one side and the bedroom block on the other.
