Working with a mature, sophisticated, Zen inspired client who totally got the ‘less is more’ aspect of downsizing but without giving up a complete lifestyle at home was an exciting challenge. Working with the owner Richard McKenster and associate Ann Ferguson, we brought a ship interior approach to space planning by the inch. An Asian approach to proportion was coupled with Italian flex-modular furniture. Interior space on three floors totalled only 900 sq ft but the finished space created included: an office, a lock-off owner’s suite, a fully furnished guest suite (sleeps four adults) and the townhome has a roof top garden. Walkable, downtown living at its best is possible with the right combination of space, client and interior designer.
