Modernising an award-winning 1930’s mansion
The challenge for Spacemaker here was to renovate this 1930s mansion, while retaining its original features and character. This was a complex project on many levels. But Spacemaker rose to the occasion with an inviting design and custom-made solutions that met the family’s unique needs.

This three-storey house had never been renovated. Spacemaker came up with a design plan that altered each of the levels, most dramatically the basement, which more than tripled in size. The result is a home (Middle Eastern themed to reflect the owners’ heritage) that’s not only striking, but practical and welcoming.
As entertaining is important to the owners, Spacemaker allowed for a large, well-equipped all-weather outdoor zone, which would easily flow into the inside.
