Three New Build Projects That We Want to Share
We just completed three projects that we are really proud of and we want to share. These three full service projects all happened to be new builds meaning; Good Space not only works with the client to uncover their vision of a perfect home but guides them through the entire build and design process while managing the teams of professionals that bring that vision to life.
A new build in an existing lot in an established neighbourhood. Ontario Street has long been known as the dividing street where east and west sides meet in Vancouver. This new build was designed to fit seamlessly into the bungalow style architecture of the existing neighbourhood. The client also received a Good Space Plan which they have been completing as their time and energy have allowed.
The kitchen area on the Ontario Street project. Designed to host large or small gatherings while still enabling the chef to be part of the party.
This new build was designed for an energetic, young family which loves to cook. The family business is also run from the home so a separate entrance to the office was incorporated so that employees could come and go without disturbing the main area.
The Anmore kitchen. Designed for a family who loves to cook. Note the cooking area is easily integrated into the entertaining and serving counter. The large windows enable the surrounding nature to become part of the scene no matter what the weather.
Built in a new suburban neighbourhood we worked with the client from Architectural drawings through to the finished home. Our client was a general contractor who wanted to build something appealing throughout the ages as this new area grew into maturity.
The stone fireplace surrounded by cedar inlay provided a strong statement feature for the open concept living area.
I am devoted to making people love living in their homes. I have done that with absolute joy for most of my life and as a career for the past 20 years or so...
I am a homebody – I do not actively seek adventure but I have had adventures. I believe home is the most sacred and important place in the world. I say I grew up on a farm – but I doubt technically it would qualify as a farm. Five acres – one milk cow – one calf - we ate them when they grew up, lots of chickens and a few pigs – we ate them too…
I was that kid who dragged rugs and furniture out to the orchard and set up outdoor rooms. It mixed my two favourite things – outside and comfortable furniture. My friends and I would sleep outside in my “rooms”. It was magical because my ceiling was full of stars.
I have lived in small houses, big houses, basement suites, cottages, condos and apartments. I have built and I have renovated houses. For a short time in my young life I was without a home
– this changed me. I have lived with pets, wanted and unwanted – rodents are unwanted… I have lived in a house richly full with the raising of my four children. I have had the tremendous
joy of my children carrying my grandchildren into my home. I have had my home become an “empty nest” and my life shrunken and shattered with the loss of my beloved husband.
Home and my people there have always been my comfort. It does not matter where home is, it only matters that you are in it and that you find comfort there and that is why I do what I do.
