Brønshøj Parish Centre

A new local and social gathering place

In a society with constant evolution, filled with rootless media and informal interactions, there is a need for gathering points that provide presence and community. The modern church can act as this space. It is a space for a unifying community to welcome you with open arms no matter your age, interests or assets.

The new Brønshøj Parish Centre aims to open itself to the surrounding community with a bright, warm and welcoming atmosphere. The concept is to create a unifying parish centre, which can accommodate multiple users and visitors.

The spaces in the centre are multifunctional and aimed to include its many different activities. The multifunctional room, which is an essential element for the parish centres’ flexible usage, can be opened and used as a larger space for many people.

At the same time the multifunctional room, using folding walls, can be transformed into three separate rooms, both taking the acoustics into account and providing more concentrated spaces. The two outdoor spaces; the garden at one end and the square in the other, also provides space for different uses and moods.
