This simple yet attractive modern cottage located in the rural area north of Utrecht, the Netherlands is a special collaboration between Zecc Architecten and interior designer Roel van Norel.
Converting old churches into modern homes in the Netherlands has become quite a trend. This beautiful minimalist home in Utrecht designed by Zecc Architecten creates a contrast with the original shapes of the chapel.
Over the years, many churches in the Netherlands have been left abandoned. It is becoming increasingly popular to convert old churches into residences to prevent them from demolition. The St. Jaobus Church in Utrecht is transformed into a beautiful modern home by Zecc Architecten. No window frames are added to the façade, and the original exterior architecture is preserved. The interior of the church house is very white and bright. Light, space and functionality have been carefully considered.
