Ormewood ParkRenovation & Flip
This renovation was inspired by the bones of the original build. While more than 60% of the superstructure had to be reframed, and the inside completely gutted, the real value was in the exterior walls and architectural focal points. Due to the interior disrepair, a “façadeomy” (structural and superficial overhaul) was necessary. The decision gave way to letting the house guide the design as the team uncovered early 20th century features like the vaulted entryway, 10-foot ceilings, and hardwood flooring.
- Build: Pre-1930s Craftsman Bungalow
- Timeline: 6 months
- Challenges: decades of sub-par DIY, unrecognizable floor plan
We modernized the space with custom barrel vault arches to create a focal point with original 12-foot ceilings.
A custom island with Carrara marble and black honed granite countertops expand the working surface and flow traffic into the dining room.
Custom millwork was designed and fabricated for Wainscot panelling, chair rail and ceiling beams.
Reorganized the space to create a flow-through layout while navigating unexpected load-bearing walls, and unified all rooms with reclaimed 12-inch heart pine plank flooring.
Custom millwork on fireplace and mantle echoes the “beam and barrel details” found throughout the home.
Custom faux coffering on vaulted ceiling is designed to pull the eye upward and pull the many windows into focus.
The custom white Carrara marble vanity top and mirror surround compliments the kitchen stonework.
We removed the 1970s-era DIY dropped ceilings in all rooms to restore the original 10-foot height.
Our team unified the roofline and completely rebuilt the front porch with new brickwork that was then blended into the original brick skirt of the foundation.
