SINT REMIGIUS

2024

  • Architects : AST 77
  • Client : Commune of Boutersem
  • Location : Neervelp, Belgium

As of 2024, the idyllic Sint Remigius church in Neervelp (near Leuven) receives a new destiny as a community centre and sociocultural meeting point by AST77 architects.

To make the church accessible for everyone, the step leading to the altar floor is recast as a convex, half-circle floor in rammed earth.

A rammed earth floor is always a challenge to install, but this project truly was a technical tour de force because of its convex shape.The floor was sanded for a natural terrazzo-look, polished and protected. An oak board and a brass circle top off the floor.
