Tervajärvi Forrest Chapel

The chapel is under construction and is being built by volunteers. The glulam timber structure chapel is based on a new approach to traditional timber structures.

Finnish Wood as a Main Material

The materials are chosen based on the site environment, lifespan and ecological values. The facades are tarred pine, the roof is tarred siberian larch, and the chosen floor material is concrete.
