The new Suvela Chapel creates a natural highpoint within its surroundings. The outward shape of the building is varied beneath a folded roof line, presenting an interesting silhouette from each new vantage point. The building also houses some facilities serving the residents’ park, making it a natural meeting point for people of all ages. The copper-clad chapel extends from the ground over the roof and belfry, resulting in a coherent, sculptural impression. The interior of the main hall is powerful in its simplicity.
