A CHARMING FRENCH COUNTRY APARTMENT IN YALETOWN
The home is in the Concord building in Yaletown's beachfront Marina Crescent. The home was purchased from the original owner and was left in disrepair.
ADDING CHARACTER TO A DOWNTOWN CONDO
The entire home was renovated with new white-washed floors, soft grey cabinetry, marble and limestone. Both bathrooms were taken down to the studs and the kitchen was fully removed and updated with all new appliances and finishes.
THE CHALLENGE: A CIRCULAR LAYOUT
The home's peculiar rounded shape was a challenge in space planning. We wanted to make each space feel connected to the view, while still giving the home a livable, relaxed feeling.
OLD-WORLD FRANCE WITH A YOUTHFUL TWIST
While having roots in classic design, we wanted to add elements that would make the home fit the youthful energy of the clients. Keeping the palette fresh and bright allowed for more sculptural pieces to have room to breathe: items such as the handmade silver swivel chair in the living room and the large glass cone light atop the dining room's more traditional white oak table.
CREATING SPACE FOR THE DECOR TO BREATHE
Rather than a focus on colour, we used texture as our palette for the home. This allowed for the home to feel more spacious and connected to the exterior and Burrard Inlet views. As far as beach homes go, this home is far from nautical and instead feels like an elegant Hamptons retreat.
