Ribbon Chapel by architecture firm Hiroshi Nakamura is a striking wedding venue located on the grounds of a luxury resort in Hiroshima, Japan. With two separate stairways, the structure forms a tangled double spiral that reaches above the surrounding trees and offers guests a view of Japan’s Inland Sea.
As designboom explains: “In a reference to the union of marriage, the building’s dual stairways start at different locations before spiraling together to form one singular structure.” Awwww…
The chapel is topped off by a green roof, viewing platform and massive skylight which fills the space with natural light.
If we were architecture, we’d ask this design to marry us.
