Evolution Design : Designed by Evolution Design , this house project was quite a challenge as it was important to retain as much of the original look and feelof the chapel as possible, numerous researches were conducted, including ecological and structural surveys and heritage appraisal. Also a research about the local neighborhood and traditional materials was carried out. The results of these surveys were later used in the sensitive development of the conversion design concept.

INSPIRATION:

This beautiful chapel built in 1880 with great proportions and elegant architectonic details is located in a picturesque rural neighborhood with panoramic views to the North Pennines. The main inspiration was the raw beauty of the landscape and the amazing open horizon and the chapel sitting in the midst of it. Enabling visitors to experience this amazing spectacle combined with the history of the chapel was the driving force of this conversion.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES :

After standing derelict for more than 40 years, a dilapidated Methodist chapel has been brought back to life by being converted into a modern holiday homefor 7 people. The great achievement of this conversion is the way it retained the original characteristics of the chapel – the tall Gothic windows and the main congregation hall. Combined with a modern but sensitive interior design, the old chapel was resurrected to a beautiful, harmonious and comfortable space flooded with natural light.
