An old Catholic church is transformed into one spatial residence. The character of the small church is maintained and where possible reinforced. The balcony at the organ is maintained and extended in the shape of a organizing element, free in the space. This element defines the different living spaces; like living, cooking and studying, in the chapel.
A new spatial hierarchy is created by the asymmetric placing of the organizing element. The object is kept very minimalistic and is given abstract shapes, by which it creates an contrast with the original, soft shapes of the chapel. Despite of their contribution to the dark character of the church, the leaded glass is maintained. For this reason roof lights are attached to the space, through which diffused day light enters the chapel. In combination with a completely white surface finishes, the leaded glass comes to life. Also a new, somewhat bold, abstract modern Mondrian version of a leaded glass front framing is introduced.
