As architects we are often asked by clients to design a building with certain qualities; to make a statement. Australian-born architect Nicholas Burns took advantage of the site to design the Chapel and Meditation Room within a private estate in northern Portugal per his client's requirements, in an unobtrusive, efficient manner. 

The second book in the ‘A.MAG Long Collection’ reveals a very special project in a highly sensitive way. Australian architect Nicholas Burns designed a chapel and meditation room for a private client that stands on a hillside of an estate in northern Portugal, overlooking denser urbanisation and green hills. The snaking granite path leading to the chapel awakens all of the senses – of time, the seasons, and place. The building’s sinuous, naked concrete form sits between giant boulders and trees; a gilded wooden altar is dramatically illuminated within. According to Burns, these are the elemental things that are important in order for people to feel naturally deeper within themselves.
