Angled and canted: Knarvik Community Church
The new community church in Knarvik – designed by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter – stands in solitary splendour above the Norwegian town.
Fulfilling the purpose of a religious and cultural gathering place in one, the church has premises not only for worship but also for music, art exhibitions and cultural events. Its striking outer form is marked by sharply-cornered planes. In line with this design concept, Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter have also provided the church a pointed and angular spire. The simple timber facade underscores the building’s striking shape, with wood also acting as the key material on the indoor surfaces.
