Historic Church gets Repurposed as a Modern-Day Bookstore

Designers had to mix old and new when it came to creating this Waanders In de Broeren bookstore in The Netherlands. BK Architecten‘s transformed a 15th century church into a modern bookstore, which includes a third floor and coffee shop. The design had to uphold the historical value and size of the church while making it a functioning retail store. To best preserve the original look of the space, only white balconies and natural materials were added to the church building.
