“Unique brick heritage designated home (built in 1911) in Glenora Edmonton that was in dire need of a working kitchen and mudroom for the busy young family. While the space was small we wanted to keep the character of the home but bring in as much function as possible while highlighting the unique features that the client fell in love with in the first place. The transformation by AMR Interior Design unveiled some great original details which really made the whole space come to life.”

Garden Road Backyard Renovation is a project designed by Nathan Fell Architecture. The owners knew they wanted to create spaces in their backyard that be useful and encourage them to be outside more often, but because their backyard space is so massive the scope and size of the project was initially difficult to define. After a few initial rounds of design, the project ended up creating a series of spaces near their house and pool rather than try to utilize the entirety of their yard.

GRAFT’s design for a single-family house and two semi-detached houses combines the aspects of mobility, energy and healthy living with environmentally-friendly construction.

The houses even generate a energy surplus that will be used to charge an e-car that the tenant rents with the house. Photography by Tobias Hein.
