We received the building permit for the St. Janskerk in Schiedam! Mei made a transformation design for the meeting room of the church, that is used for meetings, weddings, and funerals. The current gathering space is dark and has an unappealing roof that takes away the view towards the church roof and window. A glued glass arch construction on top of the existing wooden walls from 1949, will transform the room into a bright and pleasant space. The glass vault is decorated with a contemporary painting inspired on the historic context of the church.
The transformation of the gathering room is expected to start in the fall of 2019.
We will keep you updated on this extraordinary design!
