Chapel in Utrecht converted into design flat

“Another great conversion by ZECC Architecten, this time an apartment in a converted chapel located in Utrecht, The Netherlands. It’s on the second floor (added?), and because there were no windows at floor level, the firm designed one to be cut into the front on the street side to bring in more light – it vaguely resembles a Mondriaan painting. Together with the original stained-glass windows and the white painted interior, the whole effect is simply amazing. The bedroom and bathroom were left dark. The original organ remains as a reference to the history of the building – it’s a nice conversation piece, that’s for sure…”
