Bunker Arquitectura's Sunset Chapel is Designed After a Granite Boulder

Mexican designers Bunker Arquitectura have put the finishing touches on their latest project, the Sunset Chapel. The Sunset Chapel is located in Acapulco, Mexico, an area known for its stunning beaches and sunsets.

The chapel is situated along the hills of Acapulco, an area dotted with massive granite boulders. Bunker Arquitectura designed the chapel to look like a massive granite boulder rising out of the ground. I'd say Bunker Arquitectura succeeded in their attempt, as the Sunset Chapel looks as if it once belonged to the hills of Acapulco before being unearthed.

The Sunset Chapel has two floors, with the top floor functioning as a chapel and the bottom as a mausoleum. This mixture of life and death might not work so well with a more conventional design, but Bunker Arquitectura has managed to pull it off here.
