Located on the southside of the Bori Mountain in Gapyong, 30km from Seoul, South Korea, the Light of Life Chapel is a marvel of design that tempers on the futuristic side. In a village built for retired missionaries, the Light of Life Chapel is the finished product from a large amount of Siberian red cedar wood gifted to the Pastor at the community Protestant and Presbyterian church almost a decade ago.

The space of worship, by Shinslab Architecture, is captivating as it walks the line between traditional Christian symbolism and elements that attempt to cultivate reflection of a philosophical and artistic kind as well.

The Light of Life Chapel makes phenomenal use of the red cedar wood, and definitely curates an otherworldly and holy atmosphere.
