Midcentury Upgrade

Before 2,275 Sq.FT. After 3,500 SQ.FT. | Toronto, ON | Completed 2018

The most powerful force in this design was the 100+ year old majestic tree in the backyard. The L-shape footprint of the original home was preserved and extended, allowing for more rooms to be positioned towards the tree. Clear storey windows were a key design detail that were persevered. They reinforce the modern exterior aesthetic and allow for natural light to flood the open-concept living space.

The bungalow layout of the original home was maintained, with the exception of a small second storey addition for the home gym. The addition created a more dynamic front facade and allowed for uninterrupted views of the landscape while exercising.
