Church Conversion by Multiplicity
Another church conversion that we spotted on the web was completed back in 2004 by the architecture and design studio Multiplicity. With the mission to preserve the original exterior and atmosphere of the church Multiplicity created a modern interior design enhanced with the architectural details like space dividers connected with the bridge.
But even the interior hasn’t been remodeled entirely. It’s vaulted ceilings were left exposed while the arched windows and stained glass were preserved. Otherwise modern design features white walls, smooth wooden floors and contemporary furniture.
The spacious church was divided into zones thanks to the dividers that separate the living space from the dining area. The spacious kitchen is furnished with the big cooking table and a couple of wall storage systems.
The high ceilings in the church allowed architectural dividers and tall storage systems be installed still leaving plenty of space for each area. The furniture and the dividers also feature bright green colors that are both playful and stylish.
Modern church conversions often leave the exterior and certain elements of the original design preserved. The peaceful and sometimes grand atmosphere of the church is what attracts residents in the first place. The content can be different though.
Some churches are more traditional in design while others are modern and contemporary even if they don’t appear so from the outside. For instance, this Reformed Evangelism Church was turned into a modern loft but it’s owners chose to keep the exterior as it was.
This church features all the same elements except probably for the front door that was replaced with a glass one. The dynamic between the styles that are very different is also nice. What do you think?
