The Church of Gammel Holte

The Church of Gammel Holte is built in reinforced brickwork, the purposes of which are to give a specific architectural appearance, and to obtain a minimal use of materials.

The hexagonal roof was assembled on the ground and lifted into position by a mobile crane.         The solution is exceptional because of a difficult site and a limited budget. It won first prize in a Danish architectural competition in 1975.

For the construction of the church the engineering firm Erik Reitzel collaborated with the architects Halldor Gunnløgsson and Jørn Nielsen.
