Founded in 1883, the Detroit Capuchin Monastery was no longer able to light candles in the historic chapel where Healing Services are regularly held. We were asked to design an outdoor structure that would allow worshipers to participate in candle-lighting services in a climate controlled environment.
Our design team modeled a structure that emulated the sanctuary in the shape of a cross. The custom fully enclosed shelter for the chapel has the basis of design of our Slimline Series Shelter with standing seam aluminum gable roof. But, has custom split glazing, projected venting windows, and commercial door system. This project is located close to Brasco’s facilities which allowed our team to work closely with the people of the historic monastery.
