About the project

IN GONTRODE, A SUB-MUNICIPALITY OF MELLE, THE ROO CHURCH WILL, IN ADDITION TO ITS RELIGIOUS PURPOSE, SERVE AS A SPACE FOR LECTURES, MUSICAL PERFORMANCES, EXHIBITIONS AND MOMENTS OF REFLECTION. THE SOCIAL ASPECT IS STILL THERE, BECAUSE IT REMAINS A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE MEET AND CAN LOOK FOR MEANING. IN ADDITION, THE SPACE IS USED FOR ARTISTIC ACTIVITIES, WHICH GIVES THE BUILDING A BROAD CULTURAL FUNCTION.

PAINTING THE CHURCH COMPLETELY WHITE GAVE US THE OPPORTUNITY TO HIGHLIGHT ALL THE IMPORTANT ELEMENTS, SUCH AS THE PULPIT, THE ORGAN AND THE ALTAR. THE U-SHAPED OBJECTS MADE OF BIRCH PLYWOOD PROVIDE A CONTEMPORARY CONTRAST TO THE EXISTING INTERIOR. THE SHAPES CAN BE ARRANGED FLEXIBLY IN THE ROOM. IN THIS WAY, DIFFERENT MOMENTS ARE CREATED. FOR SUBDUED MOMENTS, BUT ALSO FOR CONCERTS. A GOOD BALANCE, FOR WHICH A CHURCH MUST STAND...
