Dutch practice Ruud Visser. Architect. has given this 1930′s wooden church a new lease of life by converting it into a a luxurious single-family house. Located along the river De Rotte in Rotterdam, the church has been transformed by Ruud Visser Architects and Peter Boer who created a ‘house-within’ structure which allowed to preserve some of the chapel’s original features such wood-panneled ceilings and ‘leaded light’ windows while enabling the owners to ‘walk around the new house, while walking inside the church’.
