This interesting penthouse apartment was converted from a century-old church in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The church was built in 1911 for a Methodist parish, then switched to United in 1925, and evangelical in 1970. It was eventually turned into residences in 2008.

The contemporary interior design provides an elegant contrast to the original details such as limestone walls and leaded-glass windows.
