Helsinki Chapel of Silence

 

 

Kamppi Chapel of Silence – small chapel in a busy urban section of Helsinki was designed by K2S Architects.

Light touching down on the curved surface and the feeling of warm materials define the space. The chapels inner walls are made of thick oiled alder planks. The furniture is also made of solid wood.

The facades are made of sawn-to-order horizontal finger jointed spruce wood planks, which are treated with a pigmented transparent nanotech wax. The constructive frame consists of cnc-cut gluelam elements.

There are lots of construction shots here, too.  Thanks to Sean Williams for the tip!
