Little Italy Renovation is a colourful celebration of a family’s love for their property and neighbourhood. The project expands the original home to provide a bedroom for each of the family’s three children, and a separate third-floor suite for the parents. Instead of moving house, each member of the family can grow in the home as their needs change over time.
Under the surface, this project is also a full electrification project, completely disconnecting the home from the natural gas grid and decarbonizing its operations. The building envelope has been upgraded to a super insulated, air-tight assembly, which enables highly efficient use of a fully electric mechanical system for all heating, cooling, and ventilation.
