At the end of 2012, Nunc Architecten was approached by the city renovation department of Zaanstreek about a design in which the church Zaandijkerkerk would be restored to its former glory and could be given a new residential function.
At the time, we made the structural calculations based on the old and the new state. In doing so, we made use of archive drawings and carried out thorough research on location.
Sketch designs with architect
In close consultation with the architect, we made various sketches, so that the construction was structurally sound and met the wishes of the client.
While retaining all the historical details, 11 apartments were built, 2 in the consistory and 9 in the church itself.
The spatial sensation of the church Zaandijkerkerk is best captured by a visit to the site. A small compilation has been made for those who have not yet been able to do this or for those who are unable to fly. By clicking on the image, we will take you on a flight.
