Middenbeemster church has been extended with a new volume to support its co-purpose as a community centre. The newbuild contains facilities to support the church: a foyer, a kitchen, toilets, rehearsal space, an office and youth spaces. The extension has been partly sunk into the slope and has been designed in a sober style using an anthracite colour scheme.
The Dutch Reformed Church in Middenbeemster was designed in renaissance style by Hendrick de Keyser in 1615, soon after the polder was drained. The building is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Beemster and has been recently restored. The church acts as a community centre - in addition to church services, it hosts exhibitions, meetings and concerts.
