Being the first phase of the Ástjörn church, the parish hall holds the unique status of taking on all of the functions of the parish – church services included. The anticipated second phase is a church to the south of the main hall. The Parish Hall is modest, warm and accessible. It provides a warm embrace for those who enter to seek protective shelter, peace and inner strength. The design approach was to enhance the church’s role as a servant.
The building is comfortably tucked into the lava field and creates a sheltered and pleasant external environment together with the surrounding landscape. Building and landscape blend together through the way the building’s palette of color and materials is derived from the surrounding lava. The building becomes a landscape and geometric forms and garden spaces belonging to the building‘s formal language are created in the lava. The building also partakes in different kinds of dialogue with the lava by providing sharp formal contrasts.
