The first church turned into a home is noticeably modern with pink accents and contemporary furniture. Most old churches have impressive ceiling height and this building does not disappoint. After renovations the entire church is bright and airy featuring a fantastic and open living room.
In The Netherlands there are hundreds of empty churches which have altered their function and are now given a new program, such is the case with St. Jakobus in Utrecht. The purpose of the re-use of the church was to re-evaluate this distinguished monument with as little architectural interventions as possible to transform it into a spacious residence.
