Architecture office Klaarchitectuur created its new studio in a chapel which is located at Limburg, a city in Belgium. Klaarchitectuur added rectilinear volumes both inside and outside the 17th century building, as part of a major renovation that involved completely replacing the roof. The renovation celebrates the building’s heritage.
The studio made as few structural changes as possible, and left the majority of the internal surfaces unchanged. “I fell in love with the charm of the old chapel several years ago, so it was vital the historical character of the building remained intact.” studio leader Gregory Nijs told Dezeen.
