Converted psychiatric hospital chapel

I discovered this amazing project that a Dutch company worked on called Overtreders-W. They converted an old 14th century chapel, originally part of the psychiatric hospital, which is now part of the psychiatry museum. I just love it! The museum is called Het Dolhuys. 
The designers said that lots of the objects (like the modular light system) were designed with people with psychiatric problems in mind, as they got patients to make them. The light is made of wool felt and coloured panels. 
Even the institutional green wall paint seems to work here!
And I love the black lampshades...might inject some black into my own home. 
A great kid's hidey-hole!
I love the modular shelves and the blocks of felt on the wall. 
The photos were taken by Jorn Van Eck. This is a link to his website. Great work!
