    Description :

    Noorderkerk (1620) was Hendrick de Keyser’s last church. It had a modern plan for its time: a Greek cross with small triangular additions between its arms.

    The facades are very simple and austere and are slightly reminiscent of neck-gables. Because they are lower than the ridge of the main church the four gables have been given hip-roofs.
