Living St. Antonius church

The vacant St. Anthony’s Church in Bochum is to be partially demolished, renovated, converted and supplemented by a new building. Apartments of various sizes and an underground car park are to be created.


The nave, which has been stripped back to its outer walls, will be supplemented by a new building. The original gable roof form will be resumed and continued in the two extension annexes.
After preparing the design and coordinating with the relevant authorities in Bochum, a local architectural firm submitted the project for planning permission.
Following the acquisition of an investor, the project is now being implemented in a partially modified form.
