Parry Sound House
Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada
This project involved the renovation of a large semi-circular home built in the 1970s. Located on a bare granite escarpment and radiating toward an elevated view of beautiful Georgian Bay, the sprawling single-story 3,000 sq ft plan frames views of the bay through an abundance of south facing windows and sliding doors. A round reading nook centers the layout abutting a three sided internal fireplace, creating a central focal point on the main floor.
The original fireplace was removed to allow for the installation of a three sided substitute with a concrete surround and backlit shelving to delineate the open concept kitchen, dining and living rooms while providing a warm glow to all parts of the main living quarters. The master bedroom and ensuite are appropriately located at the end of the bedroom wing for privacy.
A clean white interior and the use of valance lighting keep the large floor plan light and airy, whilst accommodating space for new accent furniture, cabinetry and fixtures; simple aesthetic solutions for an irregular floor plan layout.
