Long Description:
"The Chapel’s beauty is enhanced by its versatility. Built to serve multiple purposes, the interior has folding wood partitions that close off a portion of the auditorium which the YWCA used as classrooms. This is an example of harmonizing function and form. A vast picture window overlooks the forested dunes, bringing the inspiration of nature into the room. The wood floor is purposely slanted to give one a sense of sitting on a sand dune looking westerly to the Pacific." (visit link)
