We”ve seen a ton of inventive and clever homes here on ViralNova, but this has to be one of our favorites so far. The best part about this hidden home is that you could pass right by it and never know what you were missing.
Created from a decommissioned church in Sweden, the charming old building is getting a new lease on life as a spacious, airy home.
This church looks fairly unassuming from the outside.
This is how the interior used to look…
…and this is how it looks now!
The decommissioned church was converted into a luxury home full of open space and lots of natural light.
The owners opted to keep some of the original features, like the mural and the prayer over the archway.
But the rest of it has been made over into a modern living space.
The arches and open spaces make it seem even larger than it is.
We can only imagine that it has great acoustics.
We hope the bedroom isn”t too echoey, though.
We”re not sure what was done with the bell tower (we”re hoping for a sweet, if narrow, party room), or whether the backyard is full of graves. Still, we love this cute church”s new function. It”s a great way to celebrate the history and architecture, and give new life to an old building!
