Bunnik (U): St. Barbara (A.J.N. Boosten, 1939)





Although it is one of only a few churches designed by  Alphons Boosten outside his native province of Limburg, it is typical and representative for his style. The short tower is in Boosten's usual, robust style. A stair-turret is fluently incorporated in the tower. The front of the church reminds of the westworks of some Romanesque churches, and has a big "rose-window" of a type that's also present in the transept's facades. At the front the portal is seamlessly connected to a baptistery. The choir is of a type Boosten often used, with a semi-circular apse with ambulatory and an overall height slightly bigger than that of the nave.
