On June 24, the new chapel of the Sint Janskerk in Schiedam was officially opened. In addition to Mayor Cor Lamers and the newly appointed chairman of the church board, Huib Sneep, Robert Winkel also gave a short speech for the guests.
The small meeting space, which has been part of the church since 1949, was a secluded room with a sober feeling. To connect the chapel with the church, Mei designed a curved glass roof for the small space, providing the space with natural light from above, and a beautiful view at the original ceiling. All technical installations are cleverly built into a decorative edge under the glass, which also finishes the bearing point of the construction.
