This much loved family chalet built in the 1960’s was in need of renovation. Out went interior finishes circa 1970, a too-narrow deck and tiny windows that only gave a glimpse of the spectacular view across the hills and pond below.
Heather Asquith Architect
Heather Asquith Architect is a Toronto based architectural practice founded in 2010 with a focus on modern residential and small scale projects. The practice works closely with clients to develop thoughtful, contemporary designs in both rural and urban contexts. Much of our work deals with challenging existing conditions, from weaving a new addition with an existing farmhouse to fitting a new build on a tight urban site. We listen carefully to our clients desires, review the constraints and design a building strategy that works to a budget, big or small.
This project began as a simple addition to the rear of a two storey detached house in Bedford Park. Through the design and construction process the renovation expanded to include a full renovation weaving a new and modern aesthetic into the existing house.
