SITE SHELTER

The Site Convent is a refuge for solitude, remembrance and spiritual enlightenment, intimate spaces for reflection and contemplation. Together with the existing ruins and the ever changing sand dunes, the Site Convent offers a unique experience within this remarkable landscape; it is a mystical place and meditative sanctuary through memory, time and silence.

Entrance *
Provide a space of transition between the natural landscape and the ‘inner space’ of the Convent.

‘Inner Space’ *
Provide a monumental and magnificent space for introspection, contemplation and prayer, inviting visitors to experience a moment of silence and solitude while feeling the power and immensity of architecture. This is the main space of the Site Convent and can be a singular space or a sequence of spaces, open and / or enclosed to the natural elements.

Memory Chamber *
Provide an enclosed place of memory and remembrance, a space with the display of information about the history of the site and ruins.

Cells *
Provide intimate and enclosed spaces where visitors can spend the night; it may be an individual space or accommodate two people; size and number of cells to be determined by each participant’s design proposal. Provide communal spaces for reading, bathing and cooking (open and/or enclosed to the natural elements).

Cloister *
Provide a cloister for meditation; protected from the outside, but open to the sky to maintain a relationship with natural light and fresh air, to be able to sit down silently, sheltered from the natural elements. A water feature may be introduced into the design of the Cloister.

* Areas + Total Area to be determined by each participant’s design proposal.
