Minimalist Chapel in Riga International Airport’s North Terminal

When thinking of a chapel, the usual image that comes in our minds is something cozy, usually decorated with all sorts of religious elements. This is how they usually look like. However, there are exceptions. One of them is in Riga, Latvia. This particular chapel is part of the International Airport’s North Terminal. It’s an unusual location for a chapel but it’s not such a bad idea. It’s nice to have a quiet place where you can go to clear your mind. You can do that even without having any religious purpose.

That’s also the reason why the chapel is so simple and lacking of any specific representations. It’s because it was meant to be peaceful area where people can go regardless of their religion. The chapel was designed by ARHIS and it’s a modern representation of the traditional designs.

People usually spend a lot of time in airports and so such a place was considered to be necessary. This particular chapel is a new construction that was designed as a very simple, modern and peaceful place where one can go with his/her thoughts or search for spiritual guidance. I am not at all a religious person but I can see how such a place could be benefic. You can find the chapel on the third floor of the North Terminal of the airport.
