WINNER GOHBA 2008 AWARD - Renovations/Additions – under $75,000

The Client’s existing three bedroom home was cramped and in need of an update. The goal of this project was to provide extra living space that extended out into the back yard. A main level bedroom was not in use by the Clients, so we decided to open this area up and utilize it as the transition into the addition.


The addition was designed as a beautiful sun-filled room, which fulfilled the Client’s request for a place to read by the fire, admire the garden, and to entertain. The sleek and contemporary fireplace became the focal point of the room, and was surrounded by a unique storage unit composed of irregularly positioned doors. Large windows provide ample natural light to illuminate the architectural features of the room. Combined with a relaxing paint palette, built-in benches with storage to complement the comfortable and stylish seating, and direct access to the back garden, this new addition successfully integrates with the active but laid back lifestyle of our Clients.

From outdated, cramped and cluttered – this cost effective addition has transformed this home into a spacious,  contemporary, and open space without compromising comfort or style.
