A MEZZANINE TO EXTEND THE SPACE

Our clients bought this little one-storey (“shoebox” type) house some twenty years ago. Now with a teenage boy onboard, the whole family agreed that space was becoming an issue. Major expansion works were imperative. Adding a new level to the roof would increase the living space and answer the needs as long as the new structure did not distort the nature of the building. Three large skylights were strategically installed so that each room now receives a good share of daylight.

The kitchen is simple and highly efficient thanks to its extending table which, once deployed, can accommodate up to 14 guests. The master bedroom and bathroom enjoy an uninterrupted view on the old working-class neighbourhood of Rosemont. Moreover, the passive stack ventilation allows the house to stay cool even during the summer months.
