“A hidden piece of the Sphinxkwartier”
Hidden behind the walls of the factory, a few houses, and school buildings lies the Saint-Andrieschapel. This stately chapel has an illustrious history and is a remnant of the fourteenth-century cloister. In the early twentieth century the chapel became a Catholic patronage house for the adjacent school. After the Second World War, the chapel became a studio for artists including Charles Eijck and Piet Killaars. In 1982, a much-needed restoration was completed and the Sociaal Historisch Centrum voor Limburg (social history centre of Limburg, SHCL) took up residence in the chapel. Since February 2019, the Saint-Andrieschapel is home to the René Holten Industrial Design design studio. René Holten opens the doors of the chapel to the public several times per year for art and design exhibitions.
