Susan's Open Plan 

Who Lives There: Susan
Location: Victoria, BC
Size: 1000 square feet

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? The open plan --- it's one big room!

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The open plan! The biggest challenge was how to preserve light,openness and a feeling of spaciousness, while providing for all the functions of daily life for two busy people. We added a glass block wall to separate off the bedroom, while still allowing the light to flood the space corner to corner. We installed a raised platform in the tip-out area to provide variation, a change of rhythm and a different vantage point on the views inside and out.Both the glass block wall and the platform are curved for a sense of ease and grace, balancing the hard industrial elements like the concrete floor, exposed pipes and ducting.We used a mix of vintage, contemporary and modern elements to warm up the space and add character.
