Casa Loma // Maestri Studio

This quirky 1938 split-level home was completely reimagined in 2017. The original two-bedroom, 1,690-square-foot home evolved into a 3,300-square-foot, three-bedroom home with two living areas. The renovation was a labor of love by its owners, who wanted to preserve the original charm and scale of the home but open the floor plan with a Scandinavian-inspired modern design. There is a modern floating staircase, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, and a black painted exterior — a stark contrast to a block lined with white homes. This project is a great example of how smaller/older homes can be saved rather than razed.
