this project was named ‘2018 renovation of the year’ by cosmopolitan home magazine!

Architect: J. Visser Design

Interior Design: Kathy Waite Design

What to do when the dream home just isn’t out there? Buy where you want to be, enlist a great team and renovate. Our clients found the wrong home in the right place and approached us to help transform it. The floor plan was dramatically opened up to enhance a sense of shared space while encouraging comfort and movement. Abundant rear windows and an extended patio were added to draw the eye outdoors and down to the tranquil riverfront, blending inside and outside spaces. Both clients are avid cooks; their new, show-stopping kitchen features plentiful countertop space, multiple ovens and two dishwashers, offering room for both to move and work at once, and a television that disappears into a banquette when not in use. When their teenage sons leave for college, they can zone off the main level to carry themselves efficiently into their retirement years.

“The strength of this team and their collaborative process generated better ideas that made this project come together in a way that is astonishing.” - Homeowner
