3 865 SF
A Bowen Island bed and breakfast had been operating for years out of a large home situated on a dramatic south facing slope overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The property was stunning, but the floor plan for the house and BnB suites was inefficient and outdated.
We worked closely with the owners to provide a complete reworking of the interior floor plans which would improve their quality of life, the efficiency and profitability of their business, and finally would enhance their customers’ experiences.
Changes included the conversion of a 560 SF carriage house into a self contained studio suite with a private entrance and sun deck. Within the footprint of the existing house we managed to increase the number of suites, all of which were more appealing than the existing ones, and create new amenity spaces like a gym and reading room, a commercial style laundry facility, a larger kitchen for the owners, and improved circulation for the multi-storey building. In addition, a master bedroom suite and guest room were created with architectural interest, and which capitalize on the spectacular location.
