    the space itself is awesome but i dislike most of the decor. and that bathroom is really ugly.

    This takes some thought-on the whole I like it. The price-ummm.

    Nice interior, but it's wasted on an old church.

    The outside is a complete mess. Who plonked they grey box on the roof? The interior doesn't work either. No flow or continuity at all.

    I agree they completely ruined it. They should have just knocked it down if they were going to do that to it. Completely gut the interior and completely ignore the exterior integrity. Great.

    They were so careful to be true to the structure and the elegant and skillful nuances used in the transformation of this building from a..*throws up*

    I like it! I think it's very tastefully done.

    I agree they screwed up the reno and the exterior is a disaster, but, nevertheless, some rooms are quite lovely.

    It just looks like they put up a fake church facade in front of a regular house...
