Church of living that located in Utrecht, Netherlands, was designed by Zecc Architecten. The balcony at the organ is maintained and extended in the shape of a organizing element, free in the space. This element defi nes the different living spaces, like living, cooking and studying, in the chapel. A new spatial hierarchy is created by the asymmetric placing of the organizing element. The object is kept very minimalistic and is given abstract shapes, by which it creates an contrast with the original, soft shapes of the chapel.
By introducing an new, somewhat bold, abstract modern version of a leaded glass front framing, this contact is created. The glass front is almost Mondriaan-like, and contains references to the original leaded glass, that tells a religious story in a more aesthetic way. In contrast with the white chapel, the bed room, which is situated in the extension of the church, has a very dark character.
