As children age, the right home adapts alongside them. With growing teens, that was the situation facing our homeowners, who wanted everyone to have a bit more room. Reconfiguring the basement became a necessity.
To accommodate a new bedroom for their son and create more space for the whole family, the basement layout needed to be changed. The homeowners were also thinking long term—when their children moved out, the basement would become a wellness area.
Our design focused on the most relevant and impactful aspects:
- Creating a larger bedroom on the ground floor with a powder room for the daughter and something similar in the basement for the son
- Making smart choices to reduce energy costs
- Installing an air exchanger to improve ventilation
- Integrating the exposed epoxy-coated sloping slab into the decor
As well as becoming the kids’ go-to spot, a new laundry room made the basement more practical. And thanks to the dehumidifier we installed, our clients could air-dry their clothes, resulting in some welcome energy savings.
