Inclusive Kitchen

The Design for the inclusive kitchen was made for a couple in their mid 60s who are beginning to experience health issues. The issue in particular is macular degeneration. It causes blurred or reduced central vision, due to thinning of the macula. It is important that their kitchen is spacious and simplified to aid in their reduced vision. However, they love to cook; especially experimental foods from around the world! Their passion for cooking and being within the heart of the home should not be limited due to the disability. Clients rent a room to a college student who is going to University for Plant Biology. The kitchen should be one in which a student can easily access and use as well. Some challenges that the couple would like to be considered: - she has difficulties with orientation - poor depth perception - issues with locating items within a room - she also has a lack of general confidence due to fear when engaging independently in her current kitchen.

Side Split House Renovation

Rebecca is a 45 year old single parent with two daughters, Sienna 17, and Fiona 21. Her long time partner, Beatrice, 41, is planning on moving in with them. They need enough space and storage for all 4 family members to coexist under the same roof. Rebecca is an art dealer and Beatrice is an avid art collector, this is what brought them together and they would like impressionist art to be prominent throughout their home. Rebecca likes a vintage flair while Beatrice prefers a more modern feel in their home. They would like to balance this contrast and include a moody colour palette with the use of natural materials. They would both like to have more personality in the bedrooms and a studio space in the house dedicated to creative freedom and expression. Sienna loves the theatre and is planning to go to school for acting. she would like her personal space to be vibrant and over the top. While Fiona is looking for a calmer environment to visit when she comes home from college.

Builder Special Renovation

Water is a symbol of purity and rebirth, but it can change in an instance. Water can be forceful, aggressive and powerful. Water is dynamic not only with it's force, but with it's form. This house is designed to explore the dark side of water using scale and proportion, organic form and natural weathered materials.

Garage Home Office

With many more people working from home, individuals crave to have more workable and diverse spaces within their own homes. The goal was to created a workable space from a detached garage. The garage space for the client was imaged to be an office as well as a space to break away and have a calm moment. Also in the space was a moveable room divider custom made from plastic tubing.
