The Lizzy Chapel Flats—born within the shell of the circa-1930 Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church/Atlanta Gospel Tabernacle—serves as a reminder that, with a little creativity, even Atlanta’s challenging older buildings present an opportunity for new uses. A report in Atlanta INtown outlines the design process Kairos Development Corporation and Chasm Architecture underwent to create six condos from the old brick chapel. The interior spaces lean modern, but special care was taken to minimally impact historic details, while renovations from the 1970s and ’80s were reversed to reveal the building’s original splendor. The project went on to be recognized by the American Institute of Architects last year, and buyers snatched up the three-bedroom, three-bathroom units for around $800,000 a piece.
