Chapel Mezzanine Pod.

OOOD were tasked with designing, building and installing a structure that was free standing, dis-assemblable and to be placed in a listed church in Scotland. It was a very unique project in a very unique setting that didn’t come without it’s challenges. Here are a selection of images from the finished build through to the WIP shots and the chapel itself.

Details

Both the downstairs and the upstairs spaces can fit 2 people sleeping and so can be used for guest as well as a holiday home. The downstairs area is OSB left natural with offset shelves for storage. These modular units create the structure for the mezzanine and can be made efficiently offsite and connected together onsite. They also have the option to be customised by the customer in the form of adding flip down elements, opening section up or implementing sliding mechanisms.

The upstairs has a 15mm toughened glass balustrade and natural finish OSB floor.

Build images

We built the ‘box’ section using the OSB modular units which were painted on their flat side. We then built timber frames for the stairs and main wall and clad these in OSB sheet. We added the hand rail details last and painted everything matt black,

History

Chapel cottage is a former chapel set in the woods of Glendaruel, on the Cowal Peninsula, Argyll. It dates from 1912 and was built as a tiny church for just one person to worship - an Italian opera singer called Guilia Ravogli. It is now used as a holiday home.
