Windhover Contemplative Center

Windhover Contemplative Center

Stanford University

Architect: Aidlin Darling

The Windhover Contemplative Center, named for a series of paintings by artist Nathan Oliveria, is a spiritual refuge on the Stanford campus.  Using Oliveira’s art as a vehicle for personal renewal, the chapel-like center provides a respite from the intensity of day-to-day life.  In concert with the architecture, the landscape offers a series of tranquil spaces intended for quiet reflection throughout the day.  The center is accessible for any Stanford student, faculty, or staff member, as well as for members of the larger community.
