Sea Ranch Chapel

Location: Sonoma County, CA

Architect: James Hubbell

Year Completed: 1985

The architect James Hubbell had to draw on his experience in boat building to achieve the curved structure of the roof of the chapel. Deceptively spacious, the chapel can seat up to 40 people within its unique space. The structure features three stained glass windows, walls constructed from local stone, and sea shells and sea urchines from the nearby sea shore embedded in the carved ceiling.
