  Contemporary Church
  Conversion to Residential Use

St. John's church is a grade II listed
  building designed by the eminant
  Manchester architect James Medland Taylor
  in 1883. The original features include a
  spectacular hammer beam timber roof and
  a sloping floor, as well as two large stained
  glass windows.
 
  Artform Architects were approached by a
  private client who wished to convert the
  church into a single residence. The brief
  was to maintain the features of the interior
  whilst inserting contemporary
  accomodation for a modern family home.
  The design approach for this church
  conversion was to keep the height and
  volume of the central nave and create the
  living spaces either side, with a lightweight,
  self supporting steel framework
which has
  minimum impact on the existing fabric as
  required by the conservation officer.
