FARO archi­tects redesigned a vacant lit­tle church along the Hooft­straat in Alphen aan den Rijn. This church will be an extended-​family-​house: 3 gen­er­a­tions in 2 loft appart­ments. Each appart­ment has its own entrance and some shared spaces: gar­den, shed, work­ingroom and guest appartment.

Sus­tain­able liv­ing com­fort
The church will be com­pletely restorated pro­vid­ing new foun­da­tion and some bad con­di­tioned exten­sions will be moved. High iso­la­tion and energy suf­fi­cient instal­la­tion will carry out low energy con­sump­tion. The most spe­cial is the par­ti­tion of the res­i­dents: 2 seper­ated homes but liv­ing together. Ready for the new par­tic­i­pat­ing com­mu­nity. The out­come will be 2 unique lofts.
