This small one storey modern addition to an existing home provides a new rear entrance, interior storage and new a ground floor powder room. 

The program also allows for a large partially screened exterior deck that animates the street scape and provides privacy for intimate dining.

Design Insight

With a footprint of just 10'x12', this addition plays with and animates its small stature while also creating a tactile environment to engage with.

Custom Built-Ins

Custom Built-Ins

Behind a large set of sliding barn doors, a wood-slated bench was designed to suit the needs of the small space.

A custom sink and concrete counter was specially pigmented to reflect the client's favourite colour.

Award Winning
