Under the shelter of His wings, literally

Under the shelter of His wings, literally

By Ntsako Khosa
Walking the talk, especially from the bible, can be something very difficult to do. However, Steyn Studio proves otherwise with the Bosjes Chapel roof that is symbolic of being under ‘His’ (God’s) wings.

Set in the heart of the Breede Valley, in South Africa, the roof is designed by South-African born Coetzee Steyn of London-based Steyn Studio. Its serene sculptural form emulates the silhouette of surrounding mountain ranges, paying tribute to the historic Cape Dutch gables dotting the rural landscapes of the Western Cape. Constructed from a slim concrete cast shell, the roof supports itself as each undulation dramatically falls to meet the ground. Where each wave of the roof structure rises to a peak, expanses of glazing adjoined centrally by a crucifix adorn the façade.
