City church conversion

If urban contemporary is more your church conversion style than yesterday's country church with a cottage feel, then this Chicago redesign might just be your thing. Think modern, clean lines juxtaposed with stain glass and soaring ceilings. Chicago church conversion into family home by Linc Thelen Design and Scrafano Architects.

Black and white

Crisp, contemporary lines in classic black and white. A modern kitchen in classic black and white with a hint of the tradition in the bay window and shutters. I often overlook those little socks on bentwood chairs and stools but don't they pop in this space. PRK Residence in Melbourne by Biasol: Design Studio.

Because you can never have too many church conversions

It's no secret that Kim and I are very partial to a church conversion and this Methodist Chapel conversion is so sweet and very clever. One of my biggest complaints of this sort of re-design is that the beautiful, tall windows are often unceremoniously chopped in half by the second floor. In this case the upper rooms are tucked in under the roof. The Chapel on the Hill, in Forest-in-Teesdale, England by Evolution Design is available as a holiday home for up to 7 guests. I can feel a virtual road trip on the cards? Meet you in church?

(And in case you hadn't realised it was a winner in the UK Property Awards 2015-2016.)

Fitzroy Loft

Like a new industrial skeleton within an old brick skin, this 250m2 warehouse conversion in inner-city Melbourne is a mixture of intimate spaces and open voids, family space and public face. I love the light that streams into the heart of the old building, the walls of steel and glass windows and the outside that is actually in. Fitzroy Loft by Architects EAT.

Midnight blue

I was so inspired by the Kraków apartment by projekt i that I had to share another from their portfolio. A familiar palette of black and white is used in the public areas while a rich deep blue is the highlight of the bedroom in this stylish 50 m² apartment near the Wawalem Castle.
