Our client owns a home in Leaside that is charming in both its detailing and relatively modest scale.  We believed it was important to respect the warmth and comfort inherit in the house, and apply careful and appropriate interventions. The kitchen is designed to seamlessly integrate with the traditional detailing of the ground floor, and yet have the amenities and open concept feel of modern kitchens that the client desired.  We were also asked to incorporate both a media room and guest bedroom in the basement.  We needed to accommodate multiple functions in a relatively small space, with intelligent use of multi-purpose built-ins.  This suggested that we take a more contemporary approach in the design and choice of finishes for the basement:  A large 6’ sliding door opens to reveal a wet bar, a Murphy bed is concealed in a storage cabinet, and custom couches and ottomans also serve as additional storage space.   We also underpinned the basement in order to provide 8’ clearance throughout.
