Ava Road - One Storey Addition

This one-storey kitchen and family room addition to the rear of this North Toronto home satisfied the client's need for a better connection with their backyard and to let more light into their primary living spaces. A mature Maple tree makes up part of the view that the clients wanted to enjoy. In order to best ensure the survival of this Maple tree, only 8 ft. away from the structure at the closest point, we worked with an arborist, used suction excavation and put the addition on concrete piers. The design also incorporated a powder room, two wood decks and four of the clients' stained glass windows from past homes.
