Arnhem (G): H. Hart van Jezus (W. te Riele, 1927-1928)



The H. Hartkerk is a three-aisled cruciform basilica, designed by W. te Riele in a combination of neo-Gothic and Expressionist styles. At the front it has a portal. The church has narrow side-aisles and a wide central aisle. The clerestorey has two gables on either side. The windows of the nave are held in large, pointed arches. Like Te Riele's earlier church in Hengelo (Ov), a tower is positioned above the choir. This tower has a square base and an octagonal upper part. At the back is a polygonal apse.
