a rundown bungalow in a fantastic main street neighbourhood received a complete overhaul care of mango design co & terris lightfoot contracting. while our clients purchased this home with the intention of renovating, they weren’t quite prepared for the extent of their undertaking! we did manage to keep a portion of the original box, but the poor old house had already undergone some shabby renovations and was hardly livable for a modern family of 4.
mango redesigned & enlarged the house to be unobtrusive in the context of the streetscape, with a second-storey addition tucked within a steeply peaked cruciform roof structure. a rear addition provides much needed space on all 3 floors and the basement was dug down to provide an 8’0 ceiling height throughout most of the space. i love the clean white board & batten exterior with cedar accents!
the main floor is now a bright, open-concept plan for living & dining… with a tiny den tucked behind the fireplace wall. the open riser fir stairs float past the front windows and allow southern sunshine to flood the home. the mango-designed linear, slab panel cabinetry extends the length of the west wall and morphs from foyer bench to coat closet to pantry to kitchen work area to shelves & recycling station. a live-edge fir table butts into the island to create one long eating and social space.
the new second storey features vaulted ceilings in the master bedroom & over the open stairwell, custom millwork in the bedroom providing his & her clothing storage w/bookshelves & an open laundry centre with enclosed appliances. the basement is the ‘man cave’ for two teenage boys complete with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, recroom and a pretty amazing av system, of course.
the finishes are modern but soft, with oiled ash flooring throughout, a combination of white, fir & bamboo cabinetry, white ceaserstone countertops & hand thrown mexican tiles on the walls. an apple green countertop in the boys bathroom adds a splash of colour to their space.
