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 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).

It's great to see ruinous churches converted into something that bears life.

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.

Nikolai Church, Rostock, Germany

A very special example for a "residential church", unprecedented in its size:

St. Nikolai Church, Rostock, Germany

During GDR times in the 1970s, this large Gothic church was converted into apartments (hall) and offices (tower). I don't have interior pics of the apartments, but I guess there are some on the web.

You can see the balconies of the apartments in the hall roof:

Cheers everyone!

The funny thing is: it's actually still used as a church and public cultural institution, too. Under the roof, the community re-established after the fall of the wall 1990. The Gothic vaults etc. remain untouched.

^ Modern copper doesn't show the patina of former times. It takes much longer to turn green and sometimes even turns gray-blackish. Not sure about the specific reasons though.

I'm glad they reconstructed the little church tower and saved this chapel with a new use, but there shouldn't be balconies on the facade of a church:
