An old Victorian-style church in London was transformed into a gorgeous modern home that belies its historic exterior. Purchased by local interior designer Gianna Camilotti in 2013, this late 19th century church was gutted and converted into a contemporary home and office that still retains the building’s historic charms. Gianna Camilotti Interiors designed much of the furniture in-house within the Grade II-listed property. Located in Chingford, North East London, The James Spicer Memorial Church Hall School had served as a school and meeting place. In 2013, Camilotti snapped up the property and gave the tired building a luxurious makeover . The goal was to create a unique space that could accommodate intimate gatherings of friends with “an atmosphere of London piano-bars.” The award-winning church conversion project was recently put up for rent on Portico .

The interior features an open-plan design with a spacious living room, dining area, and kitchen on the first floor and a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom as well as a second bedroom on the upper floor. The vaulted ceiling reaches 9 meters in height in the middle of the home. Luxury amenities include underfloor heating installed throughout the interior, granite countertops, a self-playing digital piano, and an assortment of furnishings designed by Camilotti. The lavish interiors also open up to an outdoor garden area and patio with seating. + Gianna Camilotti Interiors Via Contemporist Images via Portico

From the beginning, the principal renovation objective was to retain as much of the old church’s original essence as possible, keeping the beautiful arched windows intact and working around the rather complicated floorplan. To retain the original feel of the chapel layout , the design team went for an open mezzanine floor design. Related: Majestic church is transformed into a gorgeous modern family home in Chicago “One of the main elements of the Chapel is the Gothic style arched windows that elegantly frame the beautiful views and allow the space to fill with light. Before the mezzanine floor could be considered we had to ensure that the new ceiling line would not obstruct any of the windows,” says designer Paul King. “Our approach was to provide solutions that answered the brief, but did not alter the historic details or essence of the Chapel. The main hall was the core element that gives the Chapel its feel of space and with its detailed simplicity it became the heart of the proposed design.” For anyone who’d love to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Chapel on the Hill guest home has four bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, spacious living room, and offers stunning views of the expansive countryside. + Evolution Design Via Archdaily Photographs via Evolution Design
