An architectural masterpiece by
Sigurd Lewerentz loved the raw material, which is why iron
beams and the cross was to be laid out "rain or shine" before
they were brushed off.
Lewerentz uses bricks from Helsingborg, everywhere, for the
exterior and interior walls, the floor, the ceiling, the altar and
The hard burned treatment gives the bricks a dark finish.
This dark color really shapes the atmosphere of the church
room, it’s a space with a warm feeling that embraces you.
Lewerentz cared a lot about his bricks and set up a rule before
the building process begun: No bricks shall be cut.
The walls are built up with the dark-brown brick from Helsingborg, which is made by hand craft as well as machine-made. No
bricks are adjusted to suit – man is good enough to be used by God even if she is “odd, rough or not adjusted to suit”.
The bricks are partly picked by the architect Lewerentz himself from a scrap-yard. Even human beings, who by others are
considered as “scrap”, are suitable for the Lord.
