Kenwood Renovation

Ottawa, Ontario

A chef’s kitchen is the focal point in a setting which melds house and garden. Oak flooring, window trims and detailing duplicate the existing to ensure a seamless integration of new and old. However, the kitchen uses an eclectic approach which allows the integration of furniture-like elements. A new garden room expands the informal sitting and dining area while providing great views of the outdoors.

The exterior of the house has been re-clad using a mixture of ledgerock with acrylic stucco above. Working closely with the contractor we were able to achieve an improved Energy Guide Rating from 57 to 80 through adding an HRV and improving air tightness and insulation. This brought the energy performance to the equivalent of an Energy Star rating while achieving a whole new class of look.
