Text description provided by the architects. The Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, just 100m2 and with room for up to 40 people, is built as an extension of the existing church and connected to it through its northern facade. It has been conceived as a space to promote meditation, prayer and thus peace inside those gathered there.

The square plan receives light "from above" bathing three of its four sides and with minimal openings to the outside to avoid distraction. This space, including its roof made of wooden slats, opens onto the fourth side where the sanctuary is located and to the bottom of the tabernacle as the central point of the chapel, topped off by a free volume formed by a quarter vault with double height.

The new building, designed in concrete, is integrated into the existing building by contrast, but following the relationship in height, color and texture of some of the characteristic elements, such as the great stone plinth, windows and lattices. Thus, the smooth concrete alternates with the cane texture finish dyed in a beige color present in the stone plynth.

The horizontal sequence of the parish complex is topped with the double height vault of the new chapel, which in turn is related by analogy and naturally with the curved shape of the end of the public sidewalk.
