House of Music
Program: Residential Renovation
Status: Completed 2016
The new owners of this historic Bayside house intend to retain the character of the exterior of the house while completing a very modern interior renovation. The house was selected as it is perfectly sited and arranged for the side enclosed porch to become the music room where the new owner will give piano lessons. The scope of work includes renovating four bathrooms, opening the living / dining area, enlarging the master bedroom and bathroom as well as modifying the entry sequences both from the front as well as the rear. Many energy efficient features are being installed including insulated windows, perimeter exterior insulation and a new hot water heating system and ductless cooling system. The music room will have the historic windows replaced, with the same configuration, as well as the finishes and furniture to create a dramatic, modern music room.
