An Eclectic Gem
What was originally supposed to be an addition, turned into a teardown and lead to this completely new home as the final result. Now filled with large windows, vibrant colours and well-traveled, unique décor, this reveal blew away the clients' original expectations.
With both owners working as professors, the home needed to spark inspiration and exude a peaceful ambiance, despite being set in the busy downtown of Waterloo, Ontario. The clever, yet detailed floor plan featured everything they needed: kitchen and living space, a study on the main floor, a second-floor office, a guest bedroom, and a master bedroom and ensuite. The contemporary kitchen features flat panel doors and modern pull handles; designed to focus on the view of the backyard. A mix of neutral brown tones and a crisp white palette can be seen throughout the house and the customers' personal touches are found in the selection of interior furnishings and exterior, lime green door.
The main concept of the house's architecture grasps black forms and flat lines, while surrounded by greenery, including two large magnolia trees which often can only be recognized when tearing down an old home and building in an existing, aging neighbourhood.
