Transformation Of An Historic Church Into A Modern Family’s Sanctuary


The 110-year old church in Maryland once a place for worship is converted into a family home for the new owner. As per the zoning law the property had restriction to create a same size of new building without disturbing the current structure of the historic church. Thus took place the major transformation of the church into a livable family home. This project was carried out by the Broadhurst Architects along with contractor McFarland Woods. The team had to go through a major remodeling process to convert the popular historic church without disturbing the external features, into a family home.

The major transformation included both the upper and lower floor level. The church hall, sanctuary, offices and classroom on the first floor, were remodelled to create an entry foyer, practical home office, kitchen, dining area, and family room. Whereas the lower level was converted to a kitchen with low ceilings, airy living space with plenty of natural light, four bedrooms, and a laundry room. Additionally, new windows, doors, and exterior siding were added and the existing wooden frames were repaired and restored. Which in result provided the new owners with a beautiful modern space connected to traditional roots, which they can call a home!
