Chicago Church Conversion by Linc Thelen Design

Churches bear some of the most stunning and timeless architecture in the world, but even their iconic beauty has room for improvement, as shown by this revamped and redesigned church. The design company responsible for this classic-yet-modern beauty is Linc Thelen Design, and they have managed to combine timeless features – cathedral ceilings, exposed beams, brick masonry, and even the stained glass windows – with modern contrivances like a floating steel staircase topped with glass railings for a contemporary feel.

Made to be a large home instead of a house of worship, this has seven bedrooms and six bathrooms capable of accommodating a large family or a whole fraternity with ease. Rather than tear the space down, Linc Thelen has proven that with a little ingenuity, it is possible to turn a work of art with full bell tower into a fully functioning domicile for the most new age family.
