Cottekill, New York

Do you want your dream home to get inspiration from a church? The best architecture firms in Malaysia can make that amazing dream come true. This former church in New York can be the source of beautiful ideas. It was built back in 1898, and is considered as a functional, cozy and fresh space for displaying beautiful art. Of course, the structure has been restored to get rid of added insulation and mod, but the light fixtures and stained-glass windows are still there.
