It's pretty obvious that it was once a church. The redevelopment was controversial when it was done back in 2005 and I'd rather they left it as it was too.

Not a house/apartment but an old little church in Sydney turned into a boutique designer store.

The difference is science makes no promises, at least not in the sense of ultimate goals, people believe it does

The Minorite Church in Maribor, Slovenia

The church from the 12th century, which stood derelict for several years, has been renovated and revitalised - it's now arranged as a hall with 300 seats, which will be a venue for concerts, exhibitions and smaller productions.

^fantastic, I love seeing things like this.

Isn't there a famous festival for experimental jazz somewhere in Slovenia, with one venue being a church btw?

It seems like I was thinking of the Ljubljana Jazz Festival but the one with the church used as a venue is the Konfrontationen Festival in Austria (Nickelsdorf).

St Michaels and All Angels in Bromley by Bow, London. A docklands church converted to flats in the 1970's. Free parking is a plus.
