Sacred Heart Chapel
Sacred Heart Chapel, Lancashire
This commission was for the redesigning of an existing side chapel in the church of the Sacred Heart. The chapel was used solely for devotional purposes and as such had few specific liturgical or functional criteria to be met. The design brief was therefore, almost solely to represent the spiritual. There was a requirement for an existing statue of the Sacred Heart to be displayed prominently, and places for votive candles to be mounted. In the absence of functional stimuli, the design methodology adopted a narrative which was to be given symbolic form in the architecture.
