The chapel is located within the monastery of Karmel Sv. Ilija in Buško Blato and is intended as a meditation hall where prayer meetings are held. The central part of the chapel consists of a prayer room with sitting niches and an altar, while the entrance hall is intended for storing prayer books and other materials. The room is dominated by a large cross on a wall flanked by two windows. In front of the windows there are ground glass panels that disperse light while providing privacy to the space. Accentuated interior elements such as the cross wall, seating and the altar are clad in wood while the rest of the space acts as a neutral white background for contemplation.
