The idea of church-to-residential conversions in DC often conjures images of high-ceilinged condos with majestic windows. A new conversion on the boards is delivering a different type of offering.
OPaL is restoring and retrofitting the little red chapel at 1015 D Street NE (map) into a pair of four-story, semi-detached townhouses. Built in 1900, the single-story, free-standing chapel was designed by Louis F. Stutz and originally housed the congregation of St. Michael's.
A second floor and loft will be inserted into the church building and a modern two-story addition will be appended to the rear, with a pitched roof perpendicular to that of the chapel. Some of the church's stained glass will be refurbished, while some of the panes will be replaced. Partial demolition of the rear of the property, where previous additions had been constructed, is already underway.
Both homes will have 3-4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, each with roughly 2,500 square feet of living space and private parking.
GPS Designs is the architect for the conversion, which received approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board last November. The landscape and interior design architects are Loch Collective and P Four, respectively. The homes are expected to deliver in the spring.
