Inspiration for a contemporary staircase remodel in Calgary


Contemporary Staircase, Calgary

This extensive renovation project included significant structural enhancements and interior design for this 1974 split-level-entry home. The roof was replaced above the living, dining, entry and kitchen areas to provide a vaulted ceiling. The remaining structure was preserved and stripped bare to the original 2’x4’ construction to bring the home up to current building standards. Improvements included new wiring, additional rigid insulation to the exterior, and the replacement of old fireplaces with efficient gas fireplaces. The comprehensive redesign of the exterior included: high efficiency windows, timber detailing, new deck and railings, new cedar board and batten siding and stonework. The home’s crowded entrance was alleviated by a new addition to allow for movement from the split-level to the rest of the home. The enhanced interior space allowed for an open plan design and included a large kitchen where knotty alder cabinets replaced oak in a warm cinnamon tone, offset with oil rubbed bronze hardware. Quartz was used on all counter surfaces helping to balance the mountain modern look. Silhouettes added softness to the window trim and function for privacy and sun control. The project then increased in scope to include the full renovation of bathrooms, bedrooms and lower level play area.
