About 2 and a half weeks ago, I did a post on a church conversion that
resulted in a fantastic discussion in the comments section. It was really
interesting to see the various opinions and takes on turning a type of
building like a church that has held religious and symbolic meaning
for many into a home.
I managed to find another church conversion to showcase. This one is
noticeably more modern in it's architectural elements than the church in
my previous post.
Most older churches have impressive ceiling
height and this building does not disappoint.
You can see from the renovations that an entire wall was taken out to be
lined with floor to ceiling glass doors. It makes the place very bright and
airy. What a fantastic and open place to hang out in for a living room.
The space is used in a completely modern way with an open plan living
space where the living room, dining room and kitchen are share the same
In the corner is a wonderful grand piano with an ornate music sheet stand.
You can tell from this shot, the eaves under the slanted roof of the church.
White washing all of the walls really help give the space a further feeling of
airiness. Check out the wacky modern floors.
Here's a close up of the kitchen area.
The side of the kitchen area has a fabulous diva-like fushcia chaise.
In this photo you can see just how the ceilings are in this building.
Here's a partitioned off area for a lounging area.
The way to the bathroom.
I love the trio of windows in the bathroom.
The same pattern of windows in a bedroom. This bedroom looks
absolutely fantastic if I do say so myself. It's a room that would
make me feel secure, comforted and safe.
A pink - more feminine bedroom.
The same bedroom from another angle. The
small bed and miniature chair are so cute.
Last but not least is the courtyard outside which is very tastefully done. So
what do you think of this conversion? If any of you saw my earlier post,
any different feelings this conversion evoke compared to the other one? If
you missed it, you can find the first church conversion post I did here.
