suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
MAST (ivar HEGGHEIM, jon ANDERSEN, rasmus MØLLER, & mads m. ANDERSEN): Vaaler kirke: contemporary spiritual spaces.
In this project we focused on how to design a contemporary sacred space. While considering social, cultural and historic dimensions.
We transformed the 2 dimensional draped ornaments from the baroque into 3-D draping of the ceiling. This simple geometry in combination with the texture of the wooden shingles creates ambience, rhytm and playful effects. The daylight connects and underline the soft and heavy draping of the roof. The Church is entirely made out of timber – from the loadbearing construction to the roof and facades cladded with wood shingles.
