The Rusholme renovation and addition was a careful balancing act, preserving the original character and heritage features of this eclectic 100 year-old Victorian home, while introducing new circulation, spaces and conveniences for 21st century living.
More than just a typical gut job, this head-to-toe renovation was a series of precise interventions, all carefully executed to enhance the existing character of the home while introducing a new contemporary vocabulary.
Guided by a desire for openness, this intensive renovation took a formerly dark and introverted Victorian residence and transformed it into a modern home exemplifying contemporary notions of daylighting and indoor-outdoor living – all without losing its century old charm.
