Rijnwaarde Church

prijswon competition

The door is open

In a large green park, we have designed a church, to be shared by two church communities, that unites and brings people together. Christian symbolism was an important starting point in the design. 19th-century barn churches inspire the shape of the building. The meaning and form of the cross returns to the plan and front facade and the division of the church into three sections makes reference to the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). The church building, of whose doors are open for all, is at one with the surrounding agricultural landscape.
