Adaptive Re-use and major expansion to a flood-damaged 1908 single floor home in Sunnyside.
Our client’s much loved one-storey home was badly damaged in the 2013 flood. In addition to the restoration work, they decided to do an expansion that they had long considered to meet their growing family’s needs. Along with interpreting and implementing new mitigation regulations for homes in floodways, an old lean-to at the rear was eliminated, a new extension added there, and a second storey was added, complete with a floating loft space for their child’s play area. Retaining the existing dining room and kitchen as well as their aesthetic was critical to these creative people but outside that, the design process became an exploration of a Modern home expressed in a form familiar through this great Calgary community.
