Modern and Minimal: A Sleek Midcentury Renovation

Our client purchased this 1960s home in it’s near original state, and from the moment we saw it we knew it would quickly become one of our favourite projects! We worked together to ensure that the new design would stick to it’s true roots and create better functioning spaces for her to enjoy. Clean lines and contrasting finishes work together to achieve a modern home that is welcoming, fun, and perfect for entertaining - exactly what midcentury modern design is all about!

“Right from the start there was careful attention to every detail including budget, timing, and quality. Neal is a good listener and problem solver. He skillfully managed the complete renovation of my 1962 home top to bottom balancing the building constraints, regulations, my budget and helping me fulfill the vision I had for the house.”
