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.


The Chapel: a tribute to an atmospheric, derelict protestant temple in Zeliszów, Poland, designed by the Prussian architect Carl ‘Brandenburg Gate’ Langhans, built 1796-1797.

Shot in timelapse HDR, which gives the chapel’s interior an ethereal CGI appearance, the short was directed and edited by Patryk Kiznyny at Looky Creative.
