KHR Arkitekter - Church of Holy Cross in Jyllinge, Denmark Print E-mail
Wednesday, 07 October 2009 06:55

The Church of Holy Cross is conceived and designed as an abstraction over the open horizontal landscape around Jyllinge. The building is built in glassfibre composites and appears translucent.

Homogenous surfaces with changing angles
The rooms in the building are designed with regard to the church’s functions and the changing character of the skylight. The idea was to let homogenous surfaces change in angles and planes and thereby create light, shadow, heaviness, lightness and transparency inside and outside.

Intimacy and flexibility

The room narrows in towards the choir and has several different entry points to ensure intimacy and flexibility during different arrangements.

The light flow into the church defines the room’s function; the arms of the cross are part of the movement into the church room. The procession aisle through the church is prolonged outside into a defined space with contact to the fjord and the sky above the church.
