We just love when a specific kind of building get a whole new purpose, especially when it's as good as this. This old church had tons of room, gorgeous vaulted ceilings and lots of great original detail (hello stained glass). If you think that also sounds like a recipe for an amazing residence then you're right. Linc Thelen Architects thought so too. They managed to marry the traditional style of the exterior with some amazingly beautiful and fun elements that you must see. Seriously, you've never had this much fun at church before.

Take note of how the designers used the decor to play up all the original details of the church. The neutral colors let those stained glass windows take center stage and the looong pendant lights and dark stained ceiling beams really highlight the soaring ceilings.
