Located in the Bronte corridor of Oakville, Ontario, 240 Sunrise stands out as a favorite of ours in more ways than one. One of the major intentions of our client was to preserve the original framework of this 1950’s era side split home. In close collaboration with the home owner and builder Helder Aguiar from Element Modern Dwellings, SMPL completely modified the interior layout and re-invented the volume of the space. By proposing a cubic addition at the rear of the home, we could accommodate a sunken family room on the main level and a new master suite on the second floor. In keeping with the vision of our client, we maintained the bones of the structure while enhancing the function of the house; this ultimately led to the creation of a unique product that this family will enjoy for many years to come.
