Historic Lizzie Chapel Flats Historic Rehabilitation
Located in the historic Inman Park neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia, Lizzie Chapel Flats is a Historic restoration and renovation project that converted a long-abandoned historic Baptist church into six premium “flat” condominiums.
CHASM, as Architect of Record, worked closely with the development team to ensure the essence of the building would be preserved and that all historic district and community concerns were thoughtfully addressed. This required an in-depth review of the historic character of the project along with a thorough investigation of the code.

CHASM in a very intimate, almost surgical design approach with the structural and MEP engineers, converted the two-story existing church into a three-story modern loft. Floating a new floor and managing how this new element would affect the exterior facade required many intricate, three-dimensional studies in Revit, to successfully arrive at the final solution.
