This late 19th century Victorian home was in need of a major update. The interior of the home was completely stripped to the bare exterior walls to allow for modernization of the electrical, plumbing and insulation while the exterior of the house was updated with a refresh of the trim colours. An original section of the exterior brick wall was removed on the main floor to open up the existing kitchen space to an addition that was previously added to the side of the home. The brick wall was supported with substantial i-beam construction that was left exposed in the newly-created kitchen/family room area, providing for an industrial element to the overall modernized space. Special attention was paid to stair design details, lighting design and feature walls making for a tailored mix of traditional elements dovetailing nicely with the fresh modern approach to the overall design of the home.
CHARLES STREET LOFT
Having previously renovated a condominium residence for this client, we were asked to tailor this home with unique finish treatments, lighting and millwork. One of the focal points of this modern space is a custom back-lit wall unit designed to display art and collectibles. Fully-automated custom lighting solutions provides for flexible environments.
Designed for a young family, a rear addition was added to maximize living space while keeping the original features of this old Toronto home. A bright neutral palette was used to create a transitional space for their growing needs. A mix of high and low furniture and accessories kept this home child friendly while still appealing to adults.
This 1980’s modern home called for a complete interior reconfiguration and renovation. The home now boasts a more open floor-plan providing for a better sense of flow and light. Custom glass guards on the second and third floors maintain the open approach, while modern warm finishes provide for a refined environment.
This new-build prefab style cottage was constructed using a modern interior post and beam method of construction. The industrial elements that were left exposed throughout the cottage are tempered with the warmth of the Douglas fir wall claddings and slate tiles in the bathrooms and entrance.
