Unconventional Home: Church in San Francisco Turned into Family Crib

A few months ago we featured a post on Freshome about a stunning transformation of a Gothic church in Utrecht into a fabulous living space. Even though many of you stated that living in a former church would be a bit odd, the post was very much appreciated worldwide, which is why we decided to feature a similar project. This particular church overlooking the Mission Dolores Park in San Francisco recently suffered a sever makeover. The owner decided to keep its majestic facade and transform the interiors into a single family home which features no less than three bedrooms, a giant dining room with “surveillance balconies” and long passages for hallways. According to The Wall Street Journal, his church-home is currently inhabited by Mr. Akhavan, who is planning on selling it for $7,49 million.

    Beautiful building but the main space needs some serious space planning! Would be an amazing space to work on!

    I am fascinated by the big spacious look and the beautiful walk-in closet. The kitchen and the shower are absolutely stunning. Great work of design :) I would just find it a bit strange going home to a church.

    Holy cow, that is a hell of a place!!!

    Love it! I love the spaciousness, and the art all over the walls. Great stuff, and even as open as it is, it still feels warm with all the wood.

    WANT!! Seriously breath taking. I have always dreamed of making a renovated redesigned church my home. Glad to see I’m not alone. The exterior alone is amazing! I need a space like this to come home to and it would help keep me in faith as I walk my Christian path. Beautiful work.
