"Our family worked with architect Lisa Tondino of houdinidesign Architects, Greg Mackin of Upcountry Builders and Terry Salsman of Crown Kitchens when we remodeled our 1780 cottage. Finding a balance between honouring the original structure & recycling materials while creating a clean, functional space for a modern family was a collaborative challenge requiring vision, communication, skill and problem solving. We love the final result."
Our kitchen addition renovation was a huge success thanks to Lisa Tondino’s architectural expertise, her insight into designing an addition appropriate for an older home, and her sensitivity to the importance of incorporating our needs into the overall kitchen design. At the beginning of the project, she provided detailed architectural drawings with 3D images of the proposed new space. We found this helpful in determining the size of the addition, and in keeping with the style of the house. Importantly, she met with us and the building contractor, regularly, and at each stage of the project. We were also included in crucial meetings with the structural engineer, window representative, cabinet maker, and electrician to ensure safety and adherence to current building codes and practices. Lisa transformed what was a 1970s dark and dated kitchen into a modern, bright, open, and inviting space accented toward the garden, which we love.
