The Pendant Vault

The Pendant Vault is a rare form of vault used in late Gothic architecture, in which large decorative pendants hang from the vault at a distance from the walls. In some cases, the pendants are a large form of boss.

They contain, as a keystone, an impressive monolith stone which can measure 5 metres long and weigh 7 tons.

This project was an interesting exercise in the combination of proportion, strength versus weight and elegance.
