Porsgrunn Church by Espen Surnevik
Alexander Zaxarov
May 13, 2020

Architect Espen Surnevik has collaborated with Trodahl Architects to design a geometric, porcelain-covered church in the city of Porsgrunn, Norway.

As a reference to the chalky white church that stood on the site, the interior and facades are made of white porcelain. The choice of materials looks back on Porsgrunn's industrial history. The colour and materials symbolise the highest purity. Light, which fills the church, plays a central role in symbolising hope and return.
