Church-Conversion-Linc Thelen Design-01-1 Kindesign

This beautiful church conversion project of 5,500 square feet was carried out by interior architecture firm , located in Chicago, Illinois. The home is very grand in scale, designed for a family of five, hosting seven bedrooms and six full bathrooms with plenty of space for family interaction. The open plan living, kitchen and dining area features a dramatic floor-to-ceiling double-sided fireplace with built-in niches for wood storage and soaring ceilings with skylights that bathes the interiors with natural light. Design finishes that have been incorporated into the interiors gives off a hip and eclectic vibe, which is coupled with visually intriguing wall coverings and light fixtures. The design team custom designed most of the furnishings you see showcased throughout the interiors which includes a practice rock climbing wall. The converted church features historically preserved details, which includes the original stained glass windows, a bell tower, exposed brick walls and ceiling turnbuckles, while still incorporating modern day amenities. Crisp white walls and bleached wood plank flooring keeps a simple color palette that focuses your attention to the stunning architectural elements that this preserved church has to offer.
