The Kubala Washatko Architects designed the ‘Bjorklunden Chapel’ in United States.
Description from the architects:
Björklunden Vid Sjön is a 425-acre estate on Lake Michigan in Door County, Wisconsin, which serves as Lawrence University’s northern campus, hosting retreats and seminars for Lawrence students throughout the academic year and adult continuing-education seminars during the summer.
TKWA was asked to develop a building assessment and long-term maintenance plan for a complex of historic Scandinavian-style buildings located on the property. In addition, TKWA worked with students from the Historic Preservation Institute at the UW-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning to create a set of as-built drawings for the historic buildings.
Boynton Chapel (shown) was built in a late 12th-century Norwegian stave church (stavkirke) style. Handcrafted between 1939 and 1947, the chapel is modeled after the Garmo stave church at Maihaugen in Lillehammer, Norway. A popular site for weddings and a favorite stop among Door County tourists, the chapel contains 41 hand-painted frescoes and numerous exceptionally fine carved-wood furnishings.
