The original church was a voluminous building with a high roof lined with beautiful wood paneling and a choir platform on one side with two dormer windows. In total, the volume of the church was 3,000 cubic meters, which is around 6 times larger than the average family home in the area. The volume was far grander than the family needed, but there was no need to tear the building down as it was in good working order, so Ruud Visser Architects set out to design a ‘luxurious house of normal measurements.’
