The original house was built circa 1980 in a faux-Georgian style. The clients wished to fully gut renovate the interior, making it more modern with a mid–century twist.
Playing up to the classical style, we refreshed the exterior of the house making it current and timeless. The roof was replaced and streamlined with integrated photovoltaic cells. Doors and windows were upgraded to steel Crittall style with double glazing and ribbed glass for privacy.
The layout was amended on the ground floor to make the house flow. The three-car garage was reduced to two, enabling a cloak room to be created adjacent the main entry. New openings were created forming an enfilade between the cloak room, lobby and living room with a fireplace on axis.
The staircase was amended to the opposite direction creating a greater sense of arrival. The kitchen was repositioned adjacent wet areas. enabling more living space for the informal and formal dining.
Considered simplicity with mid century influences were the driving force behind the design. A luxurious and minimal interior has been created through layered materials and textures.
