There is no accounting for taste! A heavy, eaveless monolith of a house built solidly, but on the cheap is in no way appropriate for a waterfront property in a blue ribbon suburb. Our challenge, in collaboration with Miwa Interiors was to create a home worthy of the location and the new owners who fortunatley, are seriously elegant people with tastes to match. Apart from totally re-roofing the property (including the previously absent eaves so much needed in our climate), the house was gutted top to bottom and re-imagined into a light, airy, perfectly flowing residence. Crisp and thoughtful detailing by Mia Ward and us have totally transformed a house that had our French born Architect Maelle stricken with horror when she first came to the house with Paul to measure up. "What were they thinking"? she moaned. Well...challenge accepted. We're gonna do something about that was the promise.
