Louisiana Prison Chapel
527 North Boulevard - 4th Floor
Baton Rouge, LA 70802
Working with the Louisiana Prison Chapel Foundation Board, prison
chaplains, and Louisiana Department of Corrections officials, Grace
& Hebert AIA Architects prepared the architectural design and
specifications for the chapels. Each chapel is approximately 5,000
square feet and will hold approximately 300 individuals!
The chapels are one story, interfaith, multi-ethnic worship facilities.
Seating is very flexible, using individual stacking chairs to create
workshop spaces as needed. The Chapels also include a minister's
office, meeting rooms, chancel, altar space, baptistery, and storage
Tall windows at the sides and front of the chapel, in addition to a
high vaulted ceiling, provide ample light for the spiritual center. The
basic structure consists of a metal building frame skeleton, concrete
block walls, standing seamed metal roof, a concrete foundation, and
aluminum frame windows.
Inmate labor is used, representing a significant savings in construction costs.
All issues of ownership, management and maintenance have been addressed
and resolved. Department of Public safety and Corrections will provide
ongoing maintenance of all chapels constructed.
Activities in the chapel must enhance the peaceful atmosphere of the prison.
Any religious groups seeking God may use the chapels.
