Modern Expansion + Renovation
Our clients desired to increase their space with additions to the ground floor and second floor, including a complete re-cladding of the house to give it curb appeal and a clean modern look. The renovation also increased natural light and maintained a balanced look from the interior to the exterior.
To achieve this, Sustainable measures included: a new ground floor addition which expanded the living and dining room space and brightened it with new large front windows, a renovated front entry with increased space and cubbies for storage, a new second floor addition to accommodate a new principal bedroom with ensuite washroom and walk-in closet, and a new skylight in the existing washroom. Energy efficiency was improved by replacing existing windows with new high efficiency windows, and exterior insulation was added to reduce heat-loss, which was then clad with new stone and wood siding.
The result is a light-filled, balanced, and spacious home with beautiful natural materials - a modern upgrade from the original house.
