Traditionally churches have been a big part of our firm's portfolio. Lambertseter church, designed by Harald Hille, was finished in 1966 and houses 400 visitors. It is situated in Lambertseter, one of Oslo’s first satellite town from the 1950s.
 
The location is anonymous, on a hilltop with old pine trees. The sculptural brick walls lead visitors to the entrance and a beautiful sanctuary. The bell tower is a separate structure outside the church. The construction is concrete with both facades and interior in red brick. Altar, baptism font and pulpit are made with the same red brick. The ceiling is composed of exposed cast-in-place concrete beams. The altarpiece, designed by Finn Christensen, is made of brass, iron, stainless steel and glass.
