Church House By DAHA

Feb 26, 2018

It’s easier to start with a fresh canvas than it is to build around something that is already there. Yet, with that being said, it is maybe more rewarding to successfully find a way to meld old and new. Take the Church House by DAHA Architects for example.

Located in Norman Park, Australia, this home was built around Church of Transfiguration, a place of worship that was first built in 1924 in a central location in the town. Rather than trying to extend the aesthetic of the early 20th century church, the team at DAHA instead opted to contrast and compliment it with modern materials and design. Far from being a solemn, holy place – the inside of the home includes a subterranean garage, a whiskey bar, workshop, and even a tennis court. And that’s to say nothing of the striking views of the city below from the home’s large windows.
