Show sight on map

Vaarala Chapel is a former church building of Hakunila Parish in the Vaarala district of Vantaa. It was designed by architects Leena and Kalle Niukkanen. The church was completed in 1960. In 1995, it received a demolition order from the church council, but less than a decade later the demolition order was cancelled and it was decided to preserve the church, which represents modern architecture. The congregation abandoned the church in 2013 due to the need to renovate it. When the church was transferred to a private owner, its name was changed to Vaarala Chapel at the seller's request.
