I've always loved the idea of renovating a church or warehouse as a living space. The people at Zecc just reinforced how cool it would be to take a structure that perhaps has outlived its usefulness and recasting its role as a home. This church space is an outstanding example of what can be done with just a little imagination and lots of time.
Implications - As religion becomes more and more irrelevant in consumer culture, many modern uses for religious spaces have evolved that recast the significance of these sanctuaries. Modern reinterpretations of religion and its symbols that transform them into more culturally relevant entities are on the rise many businesses are capitalizing on this pattern.
