Saints-Pierre-et-Paul/ Sint-Pieter en Paulus Church

Saints-Pierre-et-Paul/Sint-Pieter en Paulus Church, lying halfway between the two religious buildings it would replace, was built in 1935 to plans by architect Henri Julien De Ridder. The church was designed in the modernist style; simplicity characterises both its external appearance and its interior decor, showcasing the antique furniture recovered from the Baroque Saint-Nicolas/Sint-Niklaas Church. Yet for all its sobriety, the church also has a set of spectacular stained-glass windows crafted by Laeken/Laken master glassmaker J.-B. Jacobs. These fill the vast, empty nave with colour, bringing it to life. The windows depict Jesus, Mary and the saints of the parish and, uniquely, also include a stained-glass version of the Stations of the Cross dating from 1949.
