Situated within the Sweetland Heritage Conservation District, this unique 1912 two-storey home had previous renovations completed in the 1980’s. Our client, the new owner, required several restorations, renovations, and new additions. MTBA brought the professional expertise, care and heritage design skill to provide the contemporary amenities while respecting and enhancing the heritage character. The project included restoration of an original two-storey porch, renovations to the master suite including en-suite bathroom and loft, plans for development of a conservatory and garage additions, as well as basement level development of a wine cellar and office. An overall Master Plan for long term restoration and additions was prepared to guide all projects over a projected 10 year period.
Restoration of the period detailing using modern methods and materials was a highly prized element of this project. Phasing for schedule and financial budgeting was another key element. Like many of these type of projects, the client needed to talk about opportunities and constraints and ideas before formal options are drawn up. MTBA explored all of this at the preliminary stage, establishing clear rehabilitation and expansion guidelines to help develop the project solutions correctly.
