Rainbow Chapel by Kubo Tsushima Architects
Alexander Zaxarov
Jun 19, 2020

Japanese Kubo Tsushima Architects turned a steel panel-lined space into a light, airy, modern wedding chapel.

Located in the Ebisu district of Tokyo, the chapel was originally an extension of a members-only salon. Heavy ornamentation, dark, gothic ambiance characterised the space, features that the new owner wanted to eliminate and replace with as much natural light as possible. The architectural team invited for the task, obviously got rid of the steel structure and replaces it with a line of vertical fins made of fiber cement board.
