Hot new trend in the Netherlands: re-designing the interiors of abandoned churches and historic buildings to be fantastic residences. . . without greatly altering the basic structure of the original building. Yes. Please.
The residence below was St. Jakobus church in Utrecht. This church stopped holding mass in 1991 and up until 2007 had been used as showroom for antique furniture as well as a venue for small concerts. Now it is a fucking sa-weet living space filled with natural light, art, and a massive dinning room table built from old church pews.
If you're curious you can check out more of the conversion projects that Zecc has done Here. . . my favorite being the old factory converted into a loft in Utrecht, the Netherlands seen Here.
