COMMUNITY CHURCH KNARVIK
I had the great pleasure of being part of RRA's project team for the church of Knarvik. Knarvik is a town on the west coast of Norway, where the church holds an important position as the cultural provider for the local community and a center for its Christian community. This church will provide a framework for safe surroundings and simultaneously be a platform for cultural development, arts, and music in the community. The church is carefully adapted to the terrain and dimensioned to respect and blend harmoniously into the landscape’s vegetation, topography, and spatial quality. The church and its outdoor area has been developed with regard to the place and the future central square in Knarvik. The church of Knarvik will become a local venue for gatherings and faith throughout the week. The project aims to be inviting and inclusive for all people and also to be an inspiring, worthy place for gatherings that show respect for the Christian faith, people, climate, and the environment.
