The Virgin Lady of Guadalupe is an iconic symbol of religiosity in Mexican culture and the inspiration behind this Miami Chapel by FREE.

FREE, an acornym for Fernando Romero Enterprise, has won a design competition to create this stunning construction modeled as a worship center. The church imitates the robes of Lady Guadalupe with 27 pleats that undulate from the havens. Aside form its pious motifs, the architectural design is also to be marveled for its heavenly qualities.

The Miami Chapel by FREE boasts a sleek and ultra modern aesthetic that is welcoming to light with a stained glass skylight. Providing a delightful sanctuary for worship, this design shines with its interpretation of an iconic religious symbol and its representation of heaven on earth.
