Lovely – one thing that really gets me though with church conversions, something that was done in this project, is the mess made of the windows. I have yet to see a decent treatment of slender gothic windows in any church conversion. They always have bulky chunky opening parts either in the middle of the window or lumped in at the bottom, as was the case here.
Otherwise a great project, the treatment of the stonework was meticulous – the tower looked amazing when restored, and the view of it from inside was a good idea, reminded me of the lovely view of Connolly Station’s cupola through the terminal roof 🙂
Would have liked a bit of background and history of the place, it was surprising virtually nothing was mentioned.
