Formerly divided into two apartments, the building was returned into one family home, which was remodeled with Studio AC to provide it more spaces for entertaining.
The customers wanted the designers to keep up the road presence of the house, while opening the insides and modernizing the distance. StudioAC eliminated partition partitions on the ground floor to make an open-plan living space running front to rear.
A single-storey, timber-clad expansion has been added to the back, providing additional space for the kitchen and also integrating skylights for greater natural lighting. Between the dining and lounge areas there’s a fireplace, which creates a tight breakup. A white box encircles the hearth and a black flue sticks from the tip, even though a wood-lined compartment on the side can be used to show flowers.
A very simple fabric palette of white-painted and wooden surfaces is flanked by the dark gray kitchen island and cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. Ancillary spaces such as storage, a mud room, a toilet and the staircase are wholly hidden behind a built-out wall.
On the level over, the open-style design is replicated. The master bedroom plus ensuite occupy one facet of the storey, with a dressing room between. The master bathroom includes a large open concept shower plus a cantilevered vanity mirror which extends beyond a sizable frosted window.
