    Abstract

    The purpose of this study is to understand the practicalities of adaptive re-use of redundant church buildings and converting them into residential accommodation. The study briefly explores a recent history of English church closures setting the scene and scale of the problem. It then sets out to become an informative narrative on the different challenges that surround the redevelopment of these buildings.
    The study explores the different methods of church disposal, and investigates who may have an influence in its future use. Analysis is then carried out to further understand the design implications of adapting a church into units of functional living space. Three completed church adaptations are then compared with the aim of emphasising what are the main challenges that are faced when redeveloping these buildings.
