The beautiful architecture of many churches have been marveled at and adored all over the world because of its structure and extravagant designs. When you look at a church, you will be able to notice that there are things that seem similar among churches, but each structure has its own unique qualities. But have you ever imagined how an old Anglican church would look like if it is renovated into a house? The Bagnato Architects have taken big steps into shedding new perspective into their designs by turning a church into gorgeous home design. When thinking about it, you think that it is almost impossible. But as you look into the beautiful renovation of this modern home in Melbourne, you will be blown away by how amazing it has been transformed into.
In this home, the different rooms have been renovated to make it appear modern using contemporary furniture. Keeping the church like structures are smart architectural moves because there is no need to break down any parts of the building. Because of this, the renovation takes a shorter time. The original structure can readily be seen in the high ceiling of this home and the curved windows.
The original Anglican Church is not anymore located in this area because a house now stands on this location. However, the basic structure of the church has been kept and further enhanced to match the rest of the home. Looking at the exterior of this home, you would already see the original structure based on the form. Even the fence and entry to the home has been reconditioned to keep its authenticity. Despite the exterior that appears untouched, there are many changes that the exterior has gone through as one goes for a tour of the inside of the house.
The backyard of this home is totally the opposite of its exterior. It has a green garden and a swimming pool for the family to enjoy. Placing a garden in a home is important because it provides a charming atmosphere to the home. In this design, the simple green garden has added color to the neutral tones of this home design. The outdoor seating area is also a great place to dine and meet guests. In addition to this, the home has been highlighted with the use of brilliant lighting.
The inside of this house looks very modern because of the large glass windows that give a delightful view of the garden and the swimming pool outdoors. The wide floor space of this living room has been decorated not only with furniture but also with an attractive carpet. The house has been made with the use of glass, marble, limestone, and wood which has been combined together to create a marvelous design.
A church also has big spaces for its functions and this has helped with the ease of renovation for this home. It is easier to break down certain areas of the space to have a specific living area, kitchen, dining room, and bedrooms. With the luxury of space, this home even has more than enough to fit a home gym for the family. This home has really been very unique because it takes the structure of an old Anglican church. But in addition to this, the amazing furniture and designs have made this place a truly gorgeous modern house.
