The unique church restoration
A converted church and new architecturally-designed building come together to create a modern home with history in Brisbane.
Owner Bob Chambers moved the century-old church to its new site in Coorparoo, briefing his architect to keep the originality of the historic building and add the comforts of a modern home. The resulting design has up to seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, a swimming pool, and a man-made creek with three ponds.
The church’s gabled windows and stained glass have been faithfully recreated and a pressed metal feature wall at the entranceway connects the old and new buildings. Extensive roof solar panels add to the property’s sustainability goals.
A Clipsal SpaceLogic C-Bus home automation system gives Bob an overview of all the electronic elements on the property, including lighting and air conditioning and even the creek system.
