This second storey addition was designed to complement the style of existing dwelling. One existing bedroom was opened
up to make way for a semi-floating feature hardwood staircase and multi-purpose sitting / family area. The stairs
lead up to a cantilevered boardwalk that floats over the living / dining areas providing access to the new master
retreat and additional bedroom. This open boardwalk along with expansive highlight windows allows natural light to
flood the new upper level and also the previously dark ground floor living areas. These windows also provide great
cross ventilation, solar heat gain and the ability to night purge hot air in summer. The end result is a fresh, well
ventilated, contemporary family home full of natural light.
