For the first time, Kebony’s character has been used in an ecclesiastical façade for a new chapel which opened in Mölndal, Sweden. The building's geometry is unusual, its rounded corners and asymmetrical shape meant the choice of material was a challenge. The chapel sits within a forest, from where peaks of gray, exposed rock are visible through the trees.
Christer Malmström, project architect said: “The building can be said to be strongly influenced by the Asplund and Lewerentz Woodland cemetery chapel in Stockholm. We looked hard for a wood that could be ready for use from day one without requiring treatment or ongoing maintenance. Early on we decided upon using Kebony as it aptly fulfilled all of the requirements of shape, durability and appearance.”
