The Two Sisters

A hundred years ago, a house was built in an honest fashion; no excess or cluttered décor, never side stepping quality or forcing an issue; a house was built to be a home: functional, long lasting and. more than anything, sincere in its design. Rebuilding the Two Sisters meant rehabilitating these timeless values within the tradition of heritage craftsmanship.

The interiors were reconstructed with a heritage-style design, while incorporating an open-concept floor plan required by the contemporary homeowner.

Earnest in character, these homes remain sophisticated and in touch with the modern era. With seismic upgrades, a high-efficiency heating system, new plumbing and electrical systems, the two sisters have been tastefully elevated to contemporary standards.

Both sisters were carefully deconstructed to the exterior shell: the fir-flooring, window frames and reclaimable studs inspired a sustainable building plan. In the end, the beauty that was salvaged lifted the two sisters into the present day, to thrive as they were always meant to.
