Ålgård, just outside Stavanger, is a very vibrant congregation with many activities.
One of the aims for the new church was bringing together as many functions as possible under one roof. A challenge with the project was to create suitable rooms for offices, classrooms, and a café, without affecting the actual Church space. By partially lowering the ground floor into the terrain, suitable space was generated to accommodate the range of functions, leaving the sacral space undisturbed on the upper floor. A logical and functional solution that makes the sanctuary a natural and prominent center.
Another requirement from the congregation was that the church should have an iconic character and a clear christian style. The buildings dynamic sculptural form solved this request. The holistic appearance evolves out of the landscape, extending towards the sky whilst mirroring the shape and slope of the surrounding terrain.
The structure of the church is based on the square and the triangle. In Christianity, the triangle symbolizes the trinity. The square with its four corners symbolizes the earth with its four world corners. This duality is implemented into the shape of the building and into the functions it represents.
