19th Century Chapel in English Fields Turned Into Modern Home

Share |

Located in North Pennines this 19th century chapel looks like it’s from a movie. Removed from the city the building stands on a side of a narrow road surrounded with a low fence. No other buildings around it. Except unlike in need some bad movie the church is not abandoned. It’s been converted into a light modern home by Evolution Design who tried to preserve its original look.

The exterior of the building was left as it is for the exception of red-painted windows and door. On the inside the house is done in mostly white with a patterenedfeature wall in the kitchen and a grayish green wall in a living room. The mezzanine floor was designed to create more rooms, three bedrooms on the second floor, one on the ground floor. There are also a kitchen with dining area, a living room, and a bath.

The church had originally the arched windows in Gothic style but the designers added several skylights, four of which flood the kitchen with natural light, which makes for a very airy feel in the living area adjacent to it as well.

The space is cleverly utilized, for instance, under the staircase that leads to the second floor the designers set up a home office with a desk and open shelves.

The kitchen cabinets are open as well, which creates an open light atmosphere while the black appliances make for stylish accents for a black and white patterened wall.
