Project Description

This small brick church in a residential neighborhood had previously served as not only a functioning church but later as a photographer’s studio, before ESDB’s renovation into a single family home.  Upon commission the space was a blank canvas.  Our client wanted to preserve the open feeling of the ceremonial space but needed to insert a kitchen and full bath before the Borough would recognize the structure as a single family home.  We aided in a modest renovation that preserved the feel of the space and was conscious of a tight budget and schedule, while creating a functional open-concept layout.  Recognizable elements of the church, such as the stained glass windows, apse, and lighting were preserved.
