Bromma Church is one of the oldest buildings in Stockholm. Many additions have been made since its inaugural shape in the 12th century.

The latest is an extension of a new chapel combined with measures to increase the accessibility in the older parts of the church.

Visually the new chapel is subordinate to the nave in expression and form. It links to addition from the 1960s while leaving the north rustic stone wall of the medieval church untouched.

Its copper roof binds it together with the rest of the building's different extensions.

The interior merges between old and new, creating new connections between inside and outside.
