Stunning Modern Loft Inside Victorian Westbourne Grove Church
DOS Architects have completed an intriguing renovation of the top two floors of Westbourne Grove Church, a Baptist chapel initially built in 1853. Situated in London’s Notting Hill, the interiors of the new apartment seem to defy their surroundings, showcasing a highly contemporary design. A double height space acts as the core of the loft; the church’s original arched windows were kept intact and flood this interior in natural light. Pink and purple were employed to add color to the place, dynamically contrasting the white walls. The home has a total living area of 400 square meters and a layout which ensures a high level of transparency. The two floors are connected through an interesting looking glass stairway. Combining a daring design with state of the art technology and modern finishes, it is difficult to believe this futuristic apartment is integrated in an old traditional church. We are curious to know your honest opinion regarded to the overall design of this apartment in relationship to its surrounding architecture- find this approach advisable?
