This is perhaps the first time we will see a Holy Place in focus with some eco-friendly designs tied up to it. The Modular Wooden Tree of Life was built by Cerejeira Fontes in Portugal, something made of timber and a different looking place of worship with green intentions tied up with it.
The open slats allow natural light to filter into it which can alternatively be storage space for Bibles or other known church items. The timber Tree of Life chapel is a modular space for worship and reflection created for friars to utilize within the Conciliar Seminary of St. James in Braga.
The chapel sits atop a wooden deck platform, which has storage built into its base for books and Bibles. A stone block functions as a step and leads visitors into the chapel while a small altar stands at one end for priests leading prayers. Above it, the ceiling opens into an oblong skylight which allows visitors located on the mezzanine above the chapel to watch mass functions and prayers.
