Back in 2008, London-based studio DOS Architects converted the top two floors of the Westbourne Grove Church -- an 1853 Baptist chapel located in London’s Notting Hill -- into a 4,300 square foot loft-like residence with double height ceilings and bright modern interiors.
The new apartment, centered around a beautiful double height living space, is a marriage of old and new; old architecture with new technology and modern finishes.
Traditional elements have been retained, such as the church’s original arched windows which reflect the Gothic elements of the building.
The home is nothing if not transparent and open from space to space, starting with a cantilevered glass staircase and the glass-walled master bath.
It may not be everyone's taste but it is a religious experience.
