On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed to coordinate with the overall look of your document. You can use these galleries to insert tables, headers, footers, lists, cover pages, and other document building blocks. When you create pictures, charts, or diagrams, they also coordinate with your current document look.
You can easily change the formatting of selected text in the document text by choosing a look for the selected text from the Quick Styles gallery on the Home tab.

Grote or Catharijnekerk

Municipality of Heusden and Church committee Grote or Catharijne church


Make an aesthetic lighting design for the outside of the Grote or Catharijne church.


– The visibility of the church is increased by illuminating the entrance and the facades. This also indirectly illuminates the area around the church.
– Replacing the light sources in the lanterns around the church increases the light level from further afield.
– To ensure that the church lighting corresponds to the lighting in the area, we have worked with low light levels.

Be seen
– Lighting concept based on the unique history and function of the church: ‘as it is’. The church from 1550 has undergone changes through fire and war over time. The lighting design shows the church as it is today and thus emphasizes this rich history.

– Illuminating the inside and outside of the roof turret ensures that the roof turret can be seen from afar and becomes a striking landmark.

– Illumination switches off after 11 p.m. Because of safety the functional lighting remains switched on. The lighting design is executed with LED fixtures. LED has a long service life and low energy consumption.
