Kamppi Chapel of Silence
The Kamppi chapel of silence, situated on the busy Narinkka square, offers a space of retreat and encounter daily from early morning until late in the evening.
The chapel is not meant for congregational services or ceremonies although staff members of the Helsinki city congregations and social services will be available for conversation. The sense of calm will instead be supported by having small-scale gatherings.
The chapel will be open on weekdays from 7am–8pm and on weekends from 10am–6pm.
Representing a fine example of innovative timber architecture, the design of the chapel has already been recognised: it was awarded with the Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Award 2010.
The chapel is designed by K2S Architects with architect Mikko Summanen as the main designer.
