Church Turned Residence in Holland

Ronald Olthof and Sofie Suiker remodeled this eastern Holland church into their own residence.

A shipping container topped with a grass roof serves as a detached garage with a sheltered patio.

The building's old floorboards clad the bright-red staircase.

Removing an existing ceiling exposed the original roof trusses.

A glass-walled loft overlooks the living space.

Set below sidewalk level, the garage integrates unobtrusively with the garden wall.
