The Sasaki designed chapel at Sacred Heart University serves as a beacon for spiritual life on campus. It has a striking presence on the new main quadrangle, complementing the new Library and Humanities Center. The Chapel is an important crossroads in the heart of the campus, midway between the academic world and the athletic and residential life facilities on the hill. A new grove of trees to the east and south of the chapel provide a tranquil setting for reflection.The main entrance to the Chapel, marked by a bell tower, leads into the narthex, a generous space with expansive views of the main quad and direct connections to the main chapel to the west and the small chapel to the south. The main chapel opens directly into the narthex through a series of moving panels and can sit up to 450 people. It is clad in wood and glass and has a soaring ceiling line towards the altar.The small chapel is sited among the new grove of trees. Intimate in scale, the small chapel is a place of prayer and contemplation, allowing indirect natural light into the space while preserving a sense of privacy for the occupants.
