Custom Home Renovations to Help Maximize Your Home’s Space

The Challenge:

For a family of four with two teenage children their current home did not have private spaces for the kids and their friends to be together. The addition of two vehicles was also becoming a problem and as two professional they had gathered a beautiful artwork collection that did not have a dedicated display area. This residence on the west side of Calgary was found in an older developed subdivision with mature landscaping and outstanding scenic views. The 1970 brick built home had a few renovations previously complete to the kitchen and basement. The need for more space was obvious.

The Design Solution:

The solution of an addition was presented that would house a rec or games area with a bar above a three car garage with a laundry, mudroom space and a gallery corridor to connect the addition to the existing house and provide a new entrance to this entertaining home. The acreage offered plenty of space to extend this building to the north and the brick face was removed and salvaged for the reinstallation on the addition. The goal was to seamlessly add the addition without the exterior giving evidence to it’s existence. The roofline was extended with a separate gable over the new front door and the flat roof was the connection between old and new construction. A fully heated garage and work bay at ground level with a stairwell up to the second floor rec room was constructed. Oversized furniture, large games table and bar met the teenage requirements. The laundry/mudroom transition now held all the outerwear and shoes for a large family where the original rear entry never did. The continuation of the same polished marble flooring, woodwork and paint finishes will leave you guessing what is original. The transition corridor filled with natural light, large ceilings and a wide corridor allow the artwork to be seen and appreciated. This project from design concept through execution was a year and a half in the making. Decca Design was there for every step of their journey. The result is functional spaces that met and exceeded this family’s needs.

Art Gallery Inspired Dental Office Comes to Life with Interior Design and Interior Styling

The Challenge:

From the first meeting the desire was to make this dental office not feel, from the initial entrance, that this was a dental office. The practice specialized in sedation dentistry as most patients were fearful of the dental work. The art gallery inspiration was suggested by a part time artist who worked with the doctor. Inspiration was born. The next challenge for this new clinic was only two windows on the front elevation. Natural light would not be able to penetrate to the rear of the space.

The Design Solution:

The location of the windows lead to the reception and waiting area being at the front of the space followed by a glass door to separate the waiting from the dental treatment area. The art gallery theme lead to a mainly white and monochromatic color scheme and finish selections. A wood grain grey walnut was a sophisticated contribution to an otherwise white palette. Wall space was used to display various artist paintings and prints and other wall décor was limited. The simplicity of the space was also enhanced with the use of textures and finishes. The texture carved MDF reception desk face is intriguing and draws the viewer in. Inviting waiting room furniture and beverage station sets a relaxing tone for the patient.

The feedback from the patients is always very positive. They feel relaxed and peaceful as they enter the office which sets a tone for a positive experience at the dentist.

An Efficient space for a dynamic family

The Challenge:

This young, growing, very active family had a few challenges with their current residence. They had purchased it two years earlier due to it’s location and amazing two storey garage however the house needed attention. The house lacked for efficiencies in many key areas: the kitchen, entrance and quiet spaces. Originally the kitchen was broken into 2 main parts twelve feet apart. There was limited storage capacity and no rear entrance from the outside. The separate garage was accessed through the front door. This was the landing zone for all items coming in and out of the house. Anything from backpacks, to sports equipment to groceries could be found in this entrance. A home office was desired for quiet evening work and a dedicated creative space was desired to allow the current projects not to have to be put away during their creation and storage for the endless support supplies needed. The layout currently housed the children on the main floor and the master bedroom upstairs which made it difficult for entertaining. A modern look to eliminate the “country charm” would be the final request on this full scale renovation project wish list.

The Design Solution:

The Solution:

The first undertaking was to revise the current uses of the spaces and have them flow with the family. The master bedroom, ensuite and walk-in closet along with it’s own laundry facilities was relocated to the main floor. A rear entrance and outside ramp was envisioned to transport people and goods from the garage to the house. Once inside the space from this new outside entrance a mudroom with ample storage was created. The upper floor now took on the role of children’s bedrooms, Jack and Jill bathroom and the creative workspace with plenty of storage. The views from this upper level are truly inspiring and the perfect setting for painting, sewing and crafts. A private, quiet office space was achieved off the front entrance and separated from the main workings of the home. The balance of the main floor was now available for the cooking, dining and living areas. The kitchen stretches itself from the mudroom area with an extension into the dining with support countertop and upper cabinets. Tucked behind the double ovens you can find an efficient pantry space for everything and chef could require and more! Applying the modern color palette with durable, low maintenance products was the perfect finishing touch for this busy family. We were able to reintroduce family heirlooms into the new spaces to be used and enjoyed with the simple application of new upholstery. A family wall was created with generational photos and fond memories. We have left space on the wall for the many new memories that will be made within this renovated home.

THE DENTAL CLINIC

THE DENTAL CLINIC

The Dental Clinic

Dream Dental Clinic Brought to Life with Dental Office Design and Construction

The Challenge:

The thought of a new building being added to landscape of Olds was exciting. The design needed to be respectful of the “Sacred Tree” located on the lot from the previous high school courtyard. The tree has become a town symbol and was the main topic of interest when reviewing the building ideas. The freestanding building would incorporate five open operatories, two closed suites, central sterilization, lab and a large reception including a kid’s play area. Reflecting the foothills was the driving vision for the building’s exterior and interior.

The Design Solution:

The integration of mountains, forest and prairies is evident in all aspects of the design while meeting the functional needs of a dental clinic. The design style with its sloped roofs, angular siding and cool grey tones speaks to the mountains. Wood elements and interior artwork bring the forest to life and a natural palette of earth tones and finishes represent the prairies. The sacred tree is the backdrop for the building and creates a cozy environment for the staff courtyard. A large reception area with family friendly furniture, self-serve coffee and the doctors own landscape photographs hang on the wall in large format to create a relaxed environment. Project administration ensured all elements were executed and the owner’s interests were respected throughout the project. The finished product is a welcome addition to the town and a statement of pride for the owners.

Creating and Designing an Open Concept Bungalow for Entertaining

The Challenge:

This busy, travelling couple were looking for a place to call their own. They wanted a home to entertain their friends and family with minimal maintenance and up keep. They wanted a complete interior package and intended to add only their personal belongings to this new space. All furniture and furnishings to complete the look were to be purchased. As a seasoned artist the wife dreamed of an art studio, a place to call her own. Space to store the endless amount of creative supplies, canvases and works-of-art in progress or completed. She wanted to be able to enter her creative environment, be inspired then leave without care or consideration for its visual appeal.

The Design Solution:

An open concept walk-out bungalow with two bedrooms was a suitable choice layout. This left large open spaces for entertaining. A flow through kitchen with large pantry was anchored with a twelve foot granite topped island perfect to gather as the chef completes the meal. A spacious great room with a variety of comfortable seating to accommodate 10 individuals. All finishes reflect a quick clean solution with minimal long term maintenance. Prefinished hardwood is throughout the main floor. Porcelain tile accents the bathrooms, main floor laundry and front foyer. A dedicated art studio in the basement is washed with beautiful natural light, ample storage and cork under foot for maximum comfort. Inspiration is abundant in this artist’s dream studio.

THE DREAMS OF A FARM KITCHEN REALIZED

The Dreams of a Farm Kitchen Realized

Farmhouse Restoration Achieved with a Custom Kitchen Renovation

The Challenge:

Originally from eastern Canada this couple struggled with bringing their antiques, history and love of the farm into their urban home. There were existing features that had to be incorporated in to the new design. Oak – it was throughout the home and all the trim, doors and furniture. Sentimental backsplash tiles with a cherry motif were top of the salvage list and the recently purchased white appliances. Upon first entry into the existing kitchen the passion for cherry red was obvious. The challenge was how to incorporate a traditional farm style with white appliances, oak trim and cherry tiles?

Sustainable Design Practices

The Design Solution:

You are transported back to the farm as you enter into this newly renovated kitchen. The details are sprinkled throughout. The farm influence is seen in the apron sink, the bead board wainscoting, rear cupboard accent panels and the oil rubbed bronze kitchen faucet. A dining room chandelier pays homage to the school house days and the salvaged cherry tile appears in three distinctive locations; the hood fan, desk area and wainscoting cap.

The cupboards have been color matched to the white appliances to blend seamlessly and the boarded white ceiling is complete with an oak cornice. A The pallette is fresh with a bold splash of cherry red. Red quartz countertops are the talk of the neighborhood. The decision to select this daring, bold color was not without many sleepless nights however the result is stunning. The prefect cherry on top of the realization of a dream farm kitchen.

“Thank you for all your contributions from design to project management to finishing our new kitchen for us. It is unique and suits us so well. After all the agonizing over the red counter tops, it really does look fantastic!”
