Converted St Stephen’s, Hampstead UK

St Stephen’s, which is considered to be one of London’s finest Victorian Gothic Churches, had been standing empty and neglected for more than 30 years.

Completed in 1869, the church doors finally closed for worship in 1977 as congregations dwindled, and the building fell into a derelict state.

In 1999, the St Stephen’s Restoration and Preservation Trust was awarded a lease to restore the church, which saw it transformed into a multi-purpose event space, and breathing new life into the old building.
