Restoration of the Saint Charles church - Doomkerke , Diksmuide

Thorough restoration of the interior, furnishings and decoration of a Neo-Gothic church 

Sum © 2010

The Saint Charles church in Doomkerke dates back to the middle of the 19th century and has since been changed little. After the exterior of the church was fully restored between 1979 and 1997, works were carried out on the interior. The interior of the church is a uniquely preserved total concept in which the furnishings and the distinct Neo-Gothic polychrome complement each other perfectly.


The restoration campaign included four major sub-projects. First, the technical installations were renovated and restored. The wall decorations in the interior were then restored. For this work, Sum used a specific stamping technique to create special trompe-l'oeil effects. In a third phase, the stained glass windows were restored, and finally the organ was restored.
