The Church of St. Bartholomew at Zevenbergschehoek, in Brabant 1886:
Cruciform basilican stylechurch with tall octagonal tower with polygonal dome. Details in Gothic style. Square towers on both sides of the facade. Choir and transepts with three-sided apses. The church was actually too large for this small village, but being located close to the border with Zuid-Holland, near the railroad crossing the border between catholic Brabant and protestant Holland, it had great symbolic value by showing the protestants that despite centuries of oppression, the Catholics were still there. Badly damaged in the Second World War, it was replaced by a new church.
