BOLLES+WILSON’s St. Sebastian Church in Münster, Germany 

BOLLES+WILSON gave a new lease on life to the elliptical Sebastian Church in Germany. This organic and spacious building now shelters a kindergarten with classrooms and a play area complete with skylights, a slide, and a great deal of toys.

Dow Jones Architects’ St. Mary-at-Lambeth Parish Church in London, UK

Dow Jones Architects converted an old church right opposite the Houses of Parliament into a fresh modern institution. The Museum of Garden History, which used to be St. Mary-at-Lambeth Parish Church in a previous life, has been reincarnated  as a brilliant space dedicated to plants and gardening.
