Location: Våler, Hedmark county, Norway
Design: Conm + Kallesø
New church building in Våler, Norway
We chose to place the project at the edge between the old excisting cemetery and the adjacent forest. The excisting cemetery has an almost grid-like structure and early in the design phase, we chose to work this grid structure into a central square/ ”piazza” on which you arrive before entering the church.
From this central piazza the visitor will find,besides an erected bell tower as a vertical counterpart to the long horisontal path leading from the excisting cemetery to the new church ,on his left hand a smaller building containing offices for the priest, staff, the chapel, storage etc. On the right side, the visitor will find the main church room itself, the choir, hallway, parishroom etc.
When seen from outside the church building rises in one continual profile from south to north. The outside of the hole church building is cladded with thin local pine trunks on all facades.
