Glebe Living Room

Is it a home or an office? Actually, it’s both!
Amsted’s “Living Room” in The Glebe was designed to resemble a home in both layout and function, while creating a comfortable space to meet clients and an office for our team to collaborate for true design-build solutions.

The restored home respects the charm of the neighbourhood while showcasing its dual purpose. Outside, the home-like Powell façade fits seamlessly with the streetscape and serves as the entrance for the fully renovated rental suite upstairs, while the Bronson-facing façade transitions to a contemporary look suggesting its commercial function.

Inside, the home is beautifully restored and updated so that the look feels both timely and timeless — in dramatic fashion. Wall paneling was restored, tray ceilings and a window bench were added, and modern touches like herringbone-patterned tile, white barn doors, a waterfall black granite counter and a bold powder room were incorporated.

The result is a welcoming space to see a variety of design decisions while exploring your renovation plans, and demonstrates how easy it can be to incorporate an income property into an existing home.
