Bandung Architectural Heritage # 4: The Bethel Church on Wastukancana Street
The Bethel Church on Wastukancana Street #1 was designed by architect Prof. C.P. Wolff Schoemaker and constructed in 1925. It is listed by Bandung Society for Heritage Conservation (Paguyuban Pelestarian Budaya Bandung) and the Bandung municipal government as one of Bandung's colonial architectural heritage buildings.
Prof. C.P. Wolf Schoemaker is one of the most prolific and highly acclaimed architects in Indonesia (then Ductch East India) of the early 20th century. Many of his works now become Bandung's landmarks. I have posted the photos and stories of two other buildings that he designed here and here.
