Don Mills Addition and Renovation
On a quiet crescent in Don Mills, many bungalows have been torn down and replaced with large modern homes. The owners at this home decided against complete removal when they identified the need for more space, instead of opting for a spacious rear addition, front bay window addition, and rooftop dormers to improve upon the space they already had at home. Overlooking a rail trail park, the backyard maintains family privacy while also enjoying expansive views - views which are optimized from inside on all levels with large windows. A simple exterior material palette of wood, metal, and painted brick blends with the landscape, respects the original bungalow, and stands out as a unique renovation example on the street.
