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.
