The proposed expansions and reconfigurations to this home’s second storey and rear amounted to just under 500 square feet. However, in a mature neighbourhood with lots of established character, even the smallest of changes can have a huge impact.
It was crucial for the design to blend as seamlessly as possible with the rich history and character of the existing home and surrounding area. The home’s tudor-esque style was maintained in the addition, and complemented by a softer colour palette, resulting in a facade that appears as a refreshment of the original home’s charm, rather than an overhaul. The massing itself utilizes steep-pitched rooflines and expands on the existing gables, giving the home presence and curb appeal on its lush corner lot without being overpowering.
