17th century meets 21st

What happens when 17th century meets 21st? That was something we had to think about, when we were asked one year ago, to come up with a conceptual design for the complete refurbishment of a 17th century church. The building itself hasn’t been used for quite some time, apart from classical music concerts and expositions on a regular base. However, the building has much more potential. In cooperation with two social entrepreneurs, we worked on a conceptual strategy for a mixed-use commercial as well as social programme. With some minimal interventions, it must be possible to prepare the building to facilitate the new functions. Respecting its heritage qualities, these interventions can give the building a new and vital life for the rest of this 21st century.
