Blending modern finishings with historic character

Celine and Steven live in an old Toronto home that was initially a multi-unit apartment house. We first worked with them to transform it into a single-family home, primarily working on the second and third floors. The most recent job was to modernize the first floor while carefully integrating with their home’s historic character. 

Liberating Space and Making it Safe

Veronique and her husband Guillaume live with their two kids in Bloor West Village in a three-bedroom semi-detached home. When they moved into the house, the main floor’s kitchen, dining and living room were divided and cramped. The floors and the stairs were worn down from over a hundred years of use. The stairs were definitely not to code and did not feel safe for their kids.

Gutting and Rebuilding the First and Second Floor

Lindsay and John live in a three-story semi-detached home in Roncesvalles. When they moved in the floors were heavily slanted, the walls were uninsulated and the house needed some updating.

Modernizing the living room, bathroom and basement

We’ve helped Craig upgrade his home a number of times over the years. Most recently, we redid his living room, opening up the space to improve sight lines and to give the room a more modern feel. To update the look, we redid the floors, drywall, and trim and installed a bookshelf, fireplace, and pot lights.

From Crumbling Foundation to New Home

Amanda and Brent were looking to modernize their worn-down century home in Queen West. The location was perfect, but the foundation was crumbling.

UPGRADE AND MODERNIZE

Karin’s kitchen and dining room was in need of an upgrade. Awkward bulkheads and difficult traffic flow beckoned a change. We were able to open up the space, modernize the look and create a more continuous flow.

We gutted the ceilings and kitchen walls, reconfigured the plumbing and electrical, installed a flush beam to relieve the headspace, relevelled the walls and ceiling, added spray foam insulation, custom cabinetry and new floors.
