The Zuiderkerk in Amsterdam was originally designed by De Keyser (1556-1621). It has baroque overtones and was subsequently altered. However, the important aspect is the adaptation of this famous old church for modern usage. The glass galleries, suspended over the nave, are the open plan work spaces for architects and designers, and the stairs have a very modern open feel to them.
It is a very good example of a recycled building.
Very recently it was also an exhibition space for the study of modern municipal design in Amsterdam although on my last visit I was told that the space might have to close.
