Kelmarna Chapel

This project involved conversion of an existing Spanish Mission-style chapel to a three bedroom apartment. The chapel had been part of a monastery which had been demolished and replaced with townhouses. The chapel was to be demolished also, but a last minute rescue enabled the conversion to give it a new lease of life.

The main internal space, was a beautifully proportioned double height barrel-vaulted space with tall narrow coloured glass windows. This was developed as the main living area, containing kitchen/dining/living spaces, with two bedroom inserted at upper levels each and a lightweight steel stair and bridge traverses the space.

To the north, a separate garage and bedroom wing was added, creating an enclosed courtyard into which large pivoting glass doors open from the living areas.
