I think this is an outstanding piece of architecture, in term of setting, scale and building esthetic I am drawn to this!
This is not just such a beauty for a piece of architecture and design but also a piece of beauty for its purpose: a wedding chapel!
How romantic to have such a beautiful floating chapel set against the tip of the most beautiful cliff of Uluwatu, Bali. Uluwatu known for the best sunset viewing. So just imagine to have an intimate party at a romantic chapel set in a tropical garden above the clif looking over the vast Indian Ocean.
here’s some description from TRENDS magazine:
The chapel appears to float in water on the edge of the cliff-top, high above the Indian Ocean. Although the other pavilions feature local materials, all the products used in the construction of the chapel were imported.
“Tirtha means holy water, which is another reason for the setting,” says Parker. “The design was also influenced by the old palaces around Bali and Java, which were built around moats and ponds. The setting itself provides a sense of prominence and significance.”
The air-conditioned chapel can seat 40 guests and has standing room for another 20. With its raised wedding podium and altar, and the vast horizon of the ocean as a backdrop, the entire atrium creates an illusion of infinity, say the owners.
Well how do you feel about walking between water, elevated 2 meters above the ground, looking towards this huge triangle, for that bridal aile walk???
Newly opened in Oct 2006, the Infinity Chapel is surrounded by flowing water. There is a story about the design – the chapel is fantastic outlook means the husband always protects and gives his beloved warmth. And the wife is standing by his husband, giving him full support. Facing the ocean and beach, Infinity Chapel is perfect location for photo shooting during the ceremony. Boasting 117 sqm of floor space with a ceiling height of 12 m, the interior of Infinity is beautifully simple with elegant marble floors, floor to ceiling, ocean facing glass frontage and a transposable seating plan that comfortably receives 60 guests, making the fully air-conditioned building the perfect location for exclusive events and special celebrations.
