Location: Stoke St Michael, Somerset
Type: Residential Conversion
The conversion of a chapel into an Architect’s dream home – a life long ambition recently completed. A huge three storey high open plan space gave us a blank canvas for the interior design. The challenge was to get the right balance to accommodate noisy family life whilst retaining the drama and features of the chapel which could be used as an office. The juxtaposition of open and closed space also gave us an exciting basis to mix traditional with contemporary design, in a sensitive yet dynamic manner.
