In an effort to maintain the integrity of the streetscape in this neighbourhood at the foot of Moss Rock Park, the existing house was renovated, and then expanded with a significant addition towards the back of the property.
The renovation was extensive, and included new plumbing, new wiring, new exterior walls and new roof, allowing for a more comfortable 9′ ceiling and unobstructed open floor plan. Changes to the original layout were dramatic – the main entrance and stair were relocated to the new breezeway which provided a connection between old & new. A patio was added to the front of the house to establish a relationship with the street.
The “pod” addition became the new workspace for an accomplished graphic designer, housing studio on the main level, master bedroom and ensuite on a second, mezzanine level and roof deck on a third level, with views south to the water & mountains.
