Lilja Chapel by Vesa Oiva

Lilja is a portable chapel, designed by Vesa Oiva, that offers a place where one can go to be in silence.

The chapel is divided into threes parts: the vestibule, the chapel itself and an outdoor chapel. The chapel’s glass wall acts as background for outdoor events. As light flows through the pattern, it brings to mind a forest, the pace where Finns traditionally go to be in peace.

  1. This design is one of the most stunning adaptations of the Shaker idea of simplicity and beauty translated into architectural form.
