Northern Lights Cathedral, pedestrian street in Alta

The pedestrian street in the center of Alta has become one of Alta's great prides, with consistent use of the Alta Quartzite. At the end lies the magnificent Northern Lights Cathedral Alta Church, which also has an inviting outdoor area, as a kind of extension of the pedestrian street. Inside the cathedral, the quartzite is used both in the parish hall and on the church square. Here the quartzite is combined with other materials such as concrete and oak, and this gives a stylish and great impression.
