Old Convent Turned into Modern Home North of Paris

We’ve got some great feedbacks from you every time we posted  unusual home conversions. Turning a church or a monastery into a living space is a complex and challenging process. Today’s project, LeCouvent-Loft, is located North of Paris in Val-d’Oise and is in fact an old convent (dating back to the 18th century) turned into a contemporary place to live. The new “loft” has an area of 2,475 square feet and features impressive modern arrangements that you could otherwise find in luxurious penthouses. With a vivid and eye-catching chromatic, when inside, no one could possibly guess this building’ former usage. And if you are interested in knowing how this convent looked centuries ago – in 1769, have a look at the last photo of the post and compare. Freshome readers, what is your stand when it comes to turning old castles and religious institutions into modern living spaces?
