A Classic restoration of 1900's Glebe Town House in Ottawa
This was a challenging project for all, because the kitchen was very nicely done just not well designed or suited to its occupants. It truly speaks to the value of fine design as being one of the most sustainable practices we have. We donated the uppers and shipped the rest off to our shop to refinish them in an eco-friendly material, opened up the wall a little and voila! A few years later it was time to update the rest of the house and have it set for the next 100 years.
With careful interior design detailing we created beautiful floor to ceiling custom wood closets throughout this home for elegant and ample storage solutions. We created moving walls and hidden doors to add modern elements in a seamlessly integrated way. A minimalist new fireplace and hearth were added to provide ambiance and warmth. The gem of this extensive renovation is the luxurious and understated master bathroom with a walk in shower, vintage refurbished clawfoot tub and marble faced custom steel vanity. We hand picked and ortiented every peice of marble that went in that bathroom and performed a couple drylays to ensure the grain direction is seamless and the final look feels balanced and harmonious. With such careful attention to detail worthy of such fine materials our clients are proud of the lasting legacy they have created and are delighted with the ease and comfort they experience in their newly renovated home.
