This family home was originally built on a budget for the owners when they were raising their five sons. The choppy layout maximized the number of bedrooms, but could barely hold their family of seven within the common living spaces. This family home remains the primary gathering spot for their growing and extended family now that their grown sons are starting families of their own. They needed a renovation to create a Gathering House which was warm and inviting, and captured their personal style with roomy spaces for entertaining.
The second storey was renovated to give the couple the spa-like and spacious master suite that they deserve.
We were able to meet the clients’ programmatic needs, without adding nearly as much square footage as they thought the needed. This was accomplished by opening up the existing floor plan and favouring flexible uses and outdoor spaces. Their new home has a light and airy feel with flow and openness. The beautiful architectural accents throughout the many spaces will provide the stage for this next and exciting phase of their life.
