Located within the tree-lined streets of South End Halifax, our Beech street renovation was a balance of cosmetically and functionally updating the home while respecting the original architectural value and craftsmanship. Removing the wall between the previous kitchen and dining room allowed us to integrate these rooms together, creating an open-concept floor plan conducive to modern living. The olive green cabinetry and antique brass hardware were chosen for historical integrity, and the inset cabinets and dovetail joinery maintain the quality used in the original home. New unfinished birch flooring was installed and finished to match the rest of the original hardwood. In the back of the kitchen, we added a patio door and designed millwork to serve as a miniature mudroom as the kids come and go from the backyard. To protect the floors, we blended a hexagon tile into the wood in an abstract pattern to imply that it was spilling into the overall space and avoid a harsh termination point between 2 contrasting materials.
Phase 2 of the project involved renovating all the bathrooms. We contended with small footprints in each space, resulting in minimal layout changes but smarter storage solutions to optimize their use. Custom millwork in each space maintains continuity of quality, while fun and fresh finishes inject some whimsy back into this character home.
