A TREEHOUSE CHAPEL FOR EARLY LEARNING
A glorious gateway to St. Chrysostom Day School, this small project demonstrates how dreary ubiquitous space requiring accessibility, egress and system upgrades was transformed into a relevant, inspiring
685 SF place for learning and play.

Tracery, arches, and peek-a-boo quatrefoils build upon the historic church’s gothic sensibilities. The loft playspace and verticality of a cathedral of tinkertoy-like trees reinforce spatial and spiritual awareness, while creating canopied niches of exploration. The Treehouse Chapel is an appropriate, friendly, and soaring reuse of architecture.
