Belin Chapel and Rectial Hall, Houston Baptist University

7502 Fondren
Houston, TX 77074
The circular exterior features custom masonry, decorative columns and an impressive cross that spans nearly the entire vertical height of the building. Located along the perimeter of the Chapel’s interior, custom acoustical drapery encased in metal panels can be opened and closed to balance sound throughout the interior. The 12 acoustical stamped and painted steel panels had to be assembled on-site. The halo-like reflector ring that suspends from the stair-stepped ceiling above the stage is much more than an attractive architectural feature. Circular plastic reflectors adorning the ring resonate sound while encircling pendulum lights illuminate the stage below. A retractable projector screen can be lowered from the middle for presentations. At 19ft. deep and 57ft. wide, the spacious stage is perfect for small concerts as well as one act plays.
