'Kamppi Chapel of Silence' by KS2 Architects is in the urban Narinkka Square in Helsinki, Finland. This church is made completely from custom-made spruce wood plants that have formed a seamless almond-shape.
The purpose of this church is to be a refuge from the busy city life in Narinkka Square. The building is unique with its windowless facade, all-wood materials and serene and warm atmosphere. The only entrance into the building is through one door, and the light only comes from the space around the edges of the ceiling.
This building is multi-functional; it can be used as an exhibition space or for various religious events. This building would be the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of in the city.
