Located on one of the islands of the Turku archipelago in Finland, St Henry’s Ecumenical Art Chapel was designed by Helsinki-based Sanaksenaho Architects.
Redolent of the ribs of a boat and built in 2005 on a pine covered hill, the polished copper exterior (which will turn to turquoise with age) encloses a contemplative interior of warm wood.
Lovely. I hope they’ve nailed down the copper well.
“No I don’t have a bleedin’ receipt. I’ve already told ya I bought the church on Done Deal.”
It reminds me of the Holy Spirit Church in Greenhills, similar in shape and make up with its already already turquoise cooper roof.
