Boat house

A cottage renewed

Downsizing from their large family home to a small city pad, the owners wanted to modernize the amenities of their heritage cottage without losing it's character and charm.

A simple palette of materials and an uncluttered floor plan enhance the feeling of space within a tight building footprint. 

 

The "boat-shed' roof expresses the structure of the new addition and provides wonderful volume and light for the main living area.
