en Donk (NB): St. MichaŽl (H.W. Valk, 1933-1935)
church was built as a replacement for a 19th-century church elsewhere
in the village.
a christocentric church like so many designed by architect Valk. The
central nave is wide, the side-aisles are narrow. The transept also has
three-aisles. The choir is located at the crossing and is illuminated
by a square crossing-tower. It's closed by a short apse. The
crossing-tower is covered by a saddle-roof and originally was planned
to be taller than the front tower.
The church was designed in the Traditionalistic style typical for this
period in Valk's career, but with a slightly less robust tower than
usual, and shows influences of a moderate form of Gothic. In the same
period, Valk built the largely similar, but bigger church O.L.V.
