norwegian architecture firm reiulf ramstad architects has won the competition for a community church in knarvik, norway. the new structure will become a significant platform for cultural development, arts and music in the community. the 10 acre development will feature a common square, parking space for 40 cars, and a promenade walkway down to kravik’s center. the church itself is an unbroken translation of the surrounding site, undulating in dynamic angles towards the steeple on the west end. the asymmetrical windows in the geometric facades open up to let in low sunlight while providing views of both the town and the local landscape.
