From Bk Architecten:

In the Zwolle Broerenkerk we have realized the design for Waanders In Broeren. This design includes a built-in layer 3 and a shop interior in a historic 15th century church.

Assumptions for this design were found in the hand upholding the historical value and size of the church and the other adding a logistics function properly functioning shop. To keep the ship by the third layer built separately remains the preserve 60m long kerkas. In materialization is chosen sobriety. Only white balconies and further natural materials are added to the church building. In the design of the furniture is found inspiration in the work of Dom Hans vd Avenue.
