London-based studio DOSarchitects converted in 2008 the top two floors of the Westbourne Grove Church, a 1853 Baptist chapel located in London’s Notting Hill.
The now 4,300 square foot loft-like residence offers an open floor plan, double height ceilings and bright interiors for its lucky owners.
Westbourne Grove Church Conversion by DOS Architects:
“DOS Architects have completed with the consultancy from P & N Homes their stunning transformation of the top two floors of a former church in London’s trendy Notting Hill. The new apartment, which is centred round a beautiful double height space, is a marriage of old and new which brings together state of the art technology, beautiful finishes and architectural details. Traditional elements have been retained, such as the church’s original arched windows and modern features incorporated to highlight the Gothic elements of the building.
The 400m² home has a unique open plan layout which allows almost full transparency between all living spaces and, indeed, its residents. This feature, a specific request of the client, has been achieved through innovative devices such as the cantilevered glass staircase connecting the two floors as well as the glass walls surrounding the master bathroom.”
