Wow, what a night! It was an honour to be a finalist in 8 categories, but we were thrilled to win in two of them at the 35th Annual GOHBA Housing Design Awards, held at the Shaw Centre on Oct 20, 2018.
It is very gratifying to be acknowledged for the hard work we have been doing these past few years. It is affirmation that our processes allow us to provide an amazing experience, and that our work is appreciated by our peers and the industry at large.
The first award of the night for us, was a win in the category of Renovation $200,001 – $350,000 for our Tranquility on the River project. This modern renovation of a 1977 riverfront home was one of our favourites.
By relocating the basement stairs and removing a central wall, we were able to open up the entire living space. Introducing more glass in the rear wall optimized the river view while flooding the space with natural light. The contemporary kitchen features beautiful quartz counters and quartz backsplash with high gloss white and cherry cabinets, that ties into the existing wood ceiling. The front entrance features a walk-in closet and the added bonus of main-level laundry. Floating vanities, walk-in showers and a standalone soaker tub made the bathrooms unique. The entire renovation provided a usable space for the entire family.
