“Once complete, the Kamppi chapel will not be intended for congregational services or ceremonies. The sense of calm will be supported by having small-scale gatherings. Staff members of the Helsinki city congregations and social services will be available for conversation. The chapel will be open daily from early morning until late in the evening.
Expected to be completed in the spring of 2012, the chapel is designed by K2S Architects with architect Mikko Summanen as the main designer. The chapel is a fine example of innovative timber architecture, and the design has already been recognised: it was awarded with the Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Award 2010.”
