    Default Coveted crib: A converted church in London

    This conversion features large floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding a huge open space, a large fireplace, a gorgeous courtyard garden, a balcony overlooking the main space, and best of all, great light! I'd have to say it's a more desirable pad than most of the coveted celebrity cribs in London. To take a tour, check out this slideshow.

    Actually I think it's really cool to a point...I love the giant windows
    and all the natural lighting, it seems so cozy, open and airy. One thing
    I'm really not liking is the floors with the colored specks in them, I'd
    rather see solid natural wood floors that go with the rest of the
    natural feel. Another thing I don't get is the kitchen. it's just too
    modern or simplistic, or something. It just doesn't feel like it belongs.

    I would like to see a more fluent color scheme with the furniture, it
    looks really scattered and bland as is, nothing is tied together.

    agree the kitchen could be nicer, and i would go with less antique looking sofas, to contrast with the architecture. the space is fantastic though. i want it.

    I like it a lot. I'd probably redecorate it quite a bit, but the bones of the structure are just gorgeous.

    All I can think of is how the hell to clean it all, with all the high
    ceilings, arches and ornaments. There's gonna be cobwebs and
    dust all over, high ceilings: hard to heat in the winters. And
    when you're done cleaning the last windows, you can start back
    up on the first again.

    I like it, although it's probably haunted being an old church and all.

    It's an interesting restoration but when I lived in Europe I saw various usages of deconsecrated churches and two things always bothered me.

    1.) What do they do with the remains in the crypts? Not every church had them, but plenty did!

    2.) Taking out interior load-bearing stonemasonry makes the structure less stable, so they often put steel braces between the old church and the adjacent building. These steel braces are usually pretty ugly. In bigger cities they also have those spikes to keep the pigeons off them so they don't shit on peoples' heads; those spikes, while functional, are also pretty ugly.

    Overall it's an interesting use of the space, but not something I'd want to live in.
