Translucent glass helps Marine Corps chapel capture landscape views

March 17, 2011 |

Hope’s Windows were installed in the U.S. Marines Memorial Chapel in Quantico, Va., a small 77-seat facility designed by Denver-based Fentress Architects. The concept behind the $5 million facility, framed in Douglas fir with timber columns and stone accents, is a “transparent chapel in the woods.”

Hope’s large-span translucent windows add to the feeling of transparency, with modern high-tensile steel framework hidden behind wooden frames with optically brilliant laminated glass that offers uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape.
