Church conversion in Chicago

Never have I wanted to go to church as bad as when I caught a glance at this church conversion by Linc Thelen Design and Scrafano Architects. This 5,500-square-foot project took an old church in Chicago, Illinois and turned it into a single-family home for a family with three young children. Not everybody can merge modern with original stained glass, along with other existing elements, but they made it work beautifully.

The expansive main living area boasts 25-foot ceilings truly making a grand statement. In this room, they kept a neutral, cohesive palette helping to unify each of the designated spaces.

The kitchen is pretty minimalist as not to compete with the historic glass it’s centered around.

White oak floors keep the mostly white space from feeling too cold and stark.
