Stairwell Transformation – West Vancouver Renovation

The homeowners biggest ‘dislike’ of the original house was its lack of architectural interest and its mundane interior finishing. As part of our plan, we replaced the out-dated traditional oak staircase with a modern open staircase with a steel spine, chunky wood treads, and a glass ‘bridge’ connecting two floors. We also created a two-story stone wall on one side of the stairwell, with a floor-to-ceiling strip of LED lighting nestled between two layers of overlapping stone.

In addition, we installed sleek modern tile throughout, created luxurious bathrooms, installed creative and breathtaking lighting choices, designed a dining room and kitchen specifically for entertaining.

Bringing the Outdoors In

The homeowners wanted better flow from inside space to outside space. Interior spaces were opened up to the outdoor balcony facing the view by means of an Eclipse folding door system from the dining room onto the balcony. An enlarged deck was added to the front of the house, with access from the kitchen, and connected to the existing balcony off the dining room. Access to the backyard was improved by removing the sliding patio door off the staircase landing, and creating a new opening from the office area off the living room to the backyard.
