Mayfield Chapel Conversion

A magnificent chapel conversion, The Chapel in Mayfield provides home for those appreciating originality,a sense of history and elaborate style.

Abbotsford Warehouse

This warehouse conversion is in Melbourne’s inner city Abbotsford, a modern refit of an old warehouse shell.

Church Conversion in Fitzroy

Vast living spaces, soaring ceilings set this magnificent Fitzroy, Australia residence in a class of its own. The handsome bluestone building was built as The Bible Christian Church in 1860.

Chapel Loft in Bazel

It’s Sunday, so time for another church conversion (my favourites, large windows, space, what else you need?) This chapel situated in the quaint Flemish village of Bazel (not the Swiss one) has been reconverted into 2 loft-type houses. The building was built in the second half of the 19th century by Countess Villain XIIII next to the castle of Wissekerke as a place where the children of the village are be educated.

Wool Store Loft

This spacious and tastefully-decorated contemporary loft is a conversion of a former wool store located in Tenerife, Spain and displays an interesting mix of modern design, industrial elements and outdoor areas.

Berlin Bunker

In the Boros residence – a former Second World War air raid shelter built in 1942 in central Berlin – visitors can easily lose their way in the maze-like corridors of bare concrete.

Methodist Chapel conversion

This chapel remodel is amazing: a minimalist conversion of a stunning stone-built Grade II-listed former Methodist chapel (1868) in peaceful countryside on the Dorset / Wiltshire border. A once austere religious place is now a beautiful house to worship. Designed by Gary Tarn and for sale through The Modern House Real Estate Agents here, for a sum of £1,780,000 (about 2,75 million in USD)…

The Old Mechanics Institute Hall

The Mechanics Institute Hall – think Victorian era guild or trades halls. Almost churchlike. This modern conversion plays with scale and height, positive and negative space, open and enclosed.

The Wrigley Lofts

Originally a gum factory, The Wrigley Building dates back to the early 1900s. Freight elevators complement the industrial motif, and if you’re lucky, a few units have a freight elevator that enters right into the loft!

John Knox Church

Established by John Knox, The Kirk was built in 1867 in the Melbourne suburb of Elsternwick. The building features brick polychrome which was at the height of its popularity during its construction. Alternating cream and umber brick mark the gear-tooth points and wrap the building in tiny quoins. The church became an icon for the community with its style being mimicked in a nearby substation as well as homes.
