Sankt Petri Church

An architectural masterpiece by

Sigurd Lewerentz

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 pulpit. 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.
Architect Sigurd Lewerentz In S:t Petri Church has Lewerentz reached the utmost simplicity. The church interior has received a sensational design. The whole church construction is carried by a large a T-cross of iron. S:t Petri church 50 years 1966 - 2016

Bricks

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.

S:t Petri church  I don’t aspire to be religious, but it is the most sacred space I know in 20th-century artiteture, the only one, I might say /   Professor Robin Middleton
