Taylor Smyth Architects

PRO TEC Classic and PRO TEC 7

A traditional Forest Hill house is transformed – gutted and enlarged – creating a light filled family focused modern interior.

The detached 3 storey brick residence had been added onto over the years, both in front and back, creating a light locked interior. These later additions were removed and a new addition built to contain an extended kitchen/family room on the ground floor and a master bedroom suite above. Zinc panels clad the addition, as well as replacing the rotting wood infill at the front. “Surgical” interventions at the front complement the retained brick façade - a new covered entry porch with a cedar soffit and stone paving, and a modern bay window to replace the original.

The addition steps down from the kitchen to the family room seating area. Built-in millwork occupies one wall along its full length beginning as a banquet for the kitchen table and continuing to accommodate built-in storage, TV and gas fireplace. Clerestory windows above it and a wall of windows at the end of the room flood the space with natural light. The client decided that they did not need a separate living room, so the original living room at the front was converted into the dining room.

A palette of light oak flooring is combined with rich walnut millwork and white lacquered elements that include a custom designed wood screen that partially separates the kitchen prep area from the family room.
