LINK Arkitektur have completed the design and development of the Froeyland Orstad Church, a modern house of prayer in the small village of Orstad, Norway. The 2100 square meter building has an impressive capacity of 600 seats and accommodates the country’s first baptismal pool. With an appearance inspired by the surrounding landscape, the roof slopes in two directions, further blending in with the rest of the white geometrical shapes, resulting in a diverse composition.

A path with concrete tiles depicting biblical quotes leads the way to the main entrance. The interior is divided in two: “The foyer has a flexible interior configuration which also serves as a communal-area for services, coffee shops, gatherings and more. At the ground level, there is inventory for children and youth activities. An indirect lighting ambiance creates a poetic atmosphere, where at night, the external illumination accentuates the shape of the church“. “Surprisning” is just one of the words that come to mind when looking at these photos. How would you personally describe the project?

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
