The Beach Heritage Renovation

LOCATION: Toronto

OVERVIEW: From its start as a rooming house in the late 1800s, this home had seen some changes over the years, but its original aesthetics and structure bore the test of time. With the goals our client determined as priority, we were commissioned to create an open concept main floor, build a modern kitchen, achieve the best possible use of the limited space, all while keeping some of the historical essence of the home. The original layout of this home had four small rooms with dark wood trim throughout. Load bearing walls were replaced with steel beams and custom kitchen cabinetry was installed. Insulation was brought up to code and new thermal windows were added throughout the main floor. The basement staircase was widened and site finished hardwood flooring was installed on the main floor.

FEATURES: Marble was installed over the painted radiators, large baseboards were installed throughout the main floor, coffered ceilings were added and original pocket doors and trim were removed, refurbished and reused in the formal dining room and front entrance area. 14’ of the exterior wall at the back of the house was replaced with floor to ceiling thermal glass panels.
