SMALL OFFICE RENOVATION

Located in a trendy area of downtown toronto, this project included the total renovation of an older 2 story retail and residential building into a new office for a vibrant accounting and law firm. The new interior design approach aimed at taking advantage of the building's existing features where possible: Skylights, exposed brick, wood beams, etc, while using light colours and large windows to maximize natural light. The structure of the building had to be upgraded to remedy a sagging floor and to support the removal of existing load bearing walls. New timber beams and posts were designed to complement and enhance the existing appearance.

Tasks included: Survey existing building, Produce as-built (CAD) drawings, Design and construction drawings, OBC review with BCIN certification, Interior design, permit application and construction supervision.
