Altar, candleholder, antipedium
Hervormde Kerk Middenbeemster
Olaf Gipser, Volker Ulrich
The Protestant church in Middenbeemster was built between 1612 and 1621 by renowned Amsterdam church architect Hendrick de Keyzer and is a well-maintained example for Dutch renaissance architecture in Noord-Holland. The interior has additions from the Baroque and Classicist period. The new altar adds to this stylistic plurality a contemporary dimension. Its folded surface is based on the building’s proportions of 2:1.
