Michele de Lucchi Auerberg Chapel


Architect Michele De Lucchi is often called the “Poet of Architecture”, both for his subtle, aesthetic sensitivity and the constant research of an intimate, artisan perspective on his projects. All of these elements can be clearly found in this tiny chapel outside the small village of Auerberg. A project born by the desire of the owners to transform one of De Lucchi’s highly acclaimed wooden sculptures into reality. Starting from this architectural premise, Capoferri assisted the architect in scaling a small, abstract object into a place for prayer and contemplation. Capoferri engineered, built and installed the wooden roof structure clad with bronze, the impressive entrance vestibule made from solid bronze sheets, and windows with unique sun breaking inserts made from reclaimed oak retrieved directly by the architect. Though small, the project proved to be complex in finding the right equilibrium between the different materials as envisioned by the architect. A perfect challenge for the Capoferri Contract Division. Photos courtesy of Thomas Koller.
