Don Mills Residence

Categories: Houses Luxury

The Don Mills project was a full gut and re-design of a 1950’s bungalow. It involved re-design, repair, and modernizing the small dark house while maintaining the old charm of the original building. To accomplish this, we kept the facade and envelope of the existing structure and re-designed a more efficient floor plan. The objective was to create a better functional layout of the kitchen by keeping the scale in relation with the rest of the house, and open up the main floor of the house. and raise the ceiling. The solution was to remove walls and relocate openings. Raise the ceiling by creating a pitch to the existing roof line. Relocate the stairs to create an open plan and maximize the available space.
