Basing a design on the traditionally built chapel in Limburg, the architects created their church in 2011 in conjunction with the museum Z33. The single-steepled house of worship is set atop a concrete foundation on which 100 layers of stacked steel forms create the semi-transparent walls. Each layer is separated from another by over 2,000 squat steel columns. The effect of the metal construction is that when viewed directly from any side of the church, its walls appear to be see-through. If the viewer sees walls from a higher or lower angle, the structure is suddenly solid.
