vancouver home renovation, Kitsilano architect

Highbury Ave. Kitsilano Renovation Project:

Nicely located in Vancouver’s Kitsilano with a breathtaking view, this older home didn’t have the proper height for both the upper floor bedrooms and the stairs. To fix the problem we replaced the existing roof with a full-height new roof. The eight-foot ceiling allowed for bigger windows that now showcase awesome views of the north shore mountains and Stanley Park.
In addition, we turned the existing basement to a new secondary suite. Plus, by extending the deck to the back yard the kitchen got a new functioning nook for family meals.
If you are familiar with Kitsilano, you will have noticed the unique character of the area. Starting a renovation in this area, we were sensitive to the neighbourhood and we wanted to keep the existing character alive, all the while employing the most recent construction technologies as well as updated designs.
