We all know that most any place can be transformed into a home and another good example is this chapel that was transformed into a home in Switzerland. Although it seems hard to imagine, the final result is very interesting.
Come and see it for yourself!
Morscher ArchItekten converted a former chapel built in 1924 in Art Deco style in a Bern neighborhood and totally defaced in a 1970s renovation into two new apartments.
In order to keep the ground floor free of supports and retain the high church windows, the upper apartment was hung as a concrete cube.
It was possible to open up the previously closed south façade with generous sliding windows and projecting balconies looking onto the neighborhood and the garden.
Both flats were equipped with a ventilation system that is perfectly integrated into the inter-face between living and sleeping areas, bringing in fresh air.
The former altar area became the kitchen and dining room and is always fulfilled with joy and pure laughter from the children.
The magical touch in this house is the swing that hangs from the ceiling in the living room.
