The Converton_Merton project makes a bold new addition to a 125 year old house in the Hintonburg neighbourhood of Ottawa. The envelope of the addition provides the maximum area while staying within the strict planning guidelines of this historic area.
A new master bedroom floats within the triple height loft space. To keep within budget, the rough carpentry was kept exposed to express the character of the home and unify the original house & new addition.
Windows in the new addition were strategically placed to frame a view of the neighbourhood cathedral & the panoramic vistas of the Gatineau Hills.
