A modern residential apartment in a former church

It might seem odd for some people that certain persons enjoy living in a church. It has nothing to do with their beliefs and has no religious significance. It is a choice based on the architectural beauty of the building and the uniqueness of the internal structure and organization of the spaces.This old Westbourne Grove Church is located in London. At one point it was no longer used for its intended purpose. It was then that its current owners realized what great potential the church had.

They decided to transform it into their new residential space. The old church was turned into a lovely home and it is now a truly unique place. It was a project developed by DOSarchtiects. Given the circumstances, the architects preserved the exterior of the church intact. It would have been all in vain if nothing from the original design was incorporated into the new look.

The architectural beauty of the church and the location were the main reasons why the clients decided to transform it into their home. The top two floors of the church had the perfect layout for becoming the living space. The residence occupied a total area of 400 square meters. The rest of the rooms are spread throughout the structure. The interior décor is very modern, simple and chic. There aren’t any elements that would suggests that this is a church, except maybe for some of the windows, especially those from the bathroom.
