A Temple in London

At the end of the month of October I showed, within this section of unconventional homes, an Australian church converted into several apartments. Then not out of my surprise, since I never imagined that a temple could be used as a dwelling, but I think I’m going to have to get used to me, since it seems that this is a common practice in some countries.

Today we travel to London for a visit to a temple transformed into an elegant loft. On this occasion the interior structure of the Church has not changed, benefiting in this way from its unique architecture House.

Living room and kitchen they share a unique and wide space. The apse at one end, majestic shows while on the opposite side, the roof is at a lower level, since it has created a second floor which is the bedroom, private and isolated from the rest of the House.

 

The living room is delimited by two sofas arranged in corner around the fireplace, making small under a huge oval mirror. Lack of carpet left to view the platform floor, giving a fresh air to the space.

Coffee table has been replaced by an upholstered stool on which rest the legs. The light is protagonist of exception, going unchecked by the large windows of woodwork, installed in the huge pointed arches that give way to the terrace.

Alongside these, a number of elements call the attention for the way in which they are exposed. Let’s see: on the two columns that support arches, have been placed in an apparently casual manner, two mirrors of considerable size, that reflect light and give a vintage air decoration.

This Bohemian is reinforced by car from old baby found at one end. Under the central arch, two padded seats surround two large vases in Ecru color. A sumptuous black grand piano stands in the area near the kitchen, becoming a center of attention if only.

On the opposite side, guarded by a few small windows and hosted by the mansard roof, several radiators are responsible for heating this huge space, while around comfortable, tables, chairs and other furniture fill this gallery of content.

With only rotate the view have come to the kitchen, separated from the living room a superb dining table and a wood panelled bar, aggregated to perfection with the railing of the choir, who presides over the stoves.

The work area has no lockers in high, allowing only a light rack decorated with two mirrors, a recurring element in this original House. The soil of this area is really curious, stands out clearly from the seating area, in a tone lighter and bands in different colors that give the impression of being recycled planks, an idea that feel me great.

About the kitchen, under the beautiful structure of the apse is the office, which occupies the space where the old choir stood. The set is eclectic, a clever mix of outstanding Barcelona de Mies van der Rohe Chair and the Eames Lounge Chair. But all the attention is focused on the silver mirror that dominates this room from the Center.

 

Above the living room, on the second floor we find the bedroom, secluded and intimate in contrast with the rest of the House. Austerity is the dominant, having only the essential elements. Recycled again stage brings joy and originality to the room.

Outdoor charm is evident in the terrace. The beams give to understand that this has scratched inside, emptying the aisle. Two wrought iron daybeds and a set of columns exposed in the Centre, give a decadent romantic this small viewpoint.

Wooden stairs, mirrors and old windows, are supported so apparently careless on the walls. The vegetation is wisely dosed along the space.

So far has reached the already less perplexed story of a church living and stripped of its original destination. While I finish this story I wonder what will be the next House we will share from these pages & #8230;
