On February 26, 2016, an opening ceremony was held for the new religious community center for Wallonisch-Niederländische Gemeinde (Congregation), Hanau, Germany. The ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Hanau, other city officials, church leadership and members, attendees from other religious congregations, Buchart-Horn GmbH, and the building contractors.

Buchart-Horn GmbH provided the design for the church congregation including a large worship room, fellowship/event rooms, classroom/meeting rooms, rest rooms, an administration area, exterior landscaping, and a parking lot. The largest room can also be used for local community events.

The building design consists of two buildings connected by an enclosed glass circulation space. Flexibility of use, accessibility, and future expansion capability was of utmost importance to the congregation.

The most current standards for energy savings, building components, fire protection, and handicapped accessibility were used.

Buchart-Horn GmbH provided Architectural-Engineering design services, as well as building permitting, cost estimating, bidding assistance, and construction management to include cost and change order control.
