Kuokkala Church by OOPEAA

Located in Jyväskylä Lakeland, the Kuokkala Church consists of two building that clad with tiles of Spanish slate, is now a focal point of the suburban neighbourhood.

Framing with a wooden grid shell construction, the church ceiling and floors are made of Finnish spruce which create a warm atmosphere in the interior spaces.

Inspiration from architect:

It was a sculptural building containing all desired functions within one single recognizable shape, contemporary, yet rich in historical allusions. A dialogue of contrasts between the exterior and interior architecture is manifested in the material choices.
