The objective of this Toronto Renovation was to create a main floor open concept family area. The growing family of this home wanted contemporary design with aspects of traditional elements, which were present. Some of the design challenges involved the original structure, which required support including the opening of a masonry wall through to the back of the house. By retaining portions of the original bearing wall to the front of the house, a division was created between the kitchen and the living room area. Some of the special features of this renovation included the “misting” fireplace, brick wall, and wi-fi surround system in the ceiling. The kitchen also features a 6 burner commercial grade gas stove.
