The Burnaby Residence in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Vancouver recently underwent a drastic redesign by Tanya Schoenroth. A bit uncharacteristic of the designer’s past work, the family had a precise vision of the modern dream home they desired and that wish was more than fulfilled with the stunning renovation.
The two-story contemporary dwelling possesses a facade of multi-leveled cubes with medium wood, concrete and white geometric paneling. A front gate provides both privacy and a linear aesthetic to the entryway.
The home is washed in shades of grey, pure white and light beige with plentiful accents of glass, steel and wood attributing to its airy vibe. Engineered white oak flooring throughout immediately provides a neutral impact, thus a soothing backdrop to the minimalist spaces.
The all-white kitchen is open to the dining area and shines with lacquered cabinetry and glass tiles. The farmhouse-style sink, double ovens, hood, dishwasher and refrigerators are clad in brushed stainless steel. A center island houses the industrial gas stove top and seats four at the elegant white and chrome stools. A set of triple glass pendants with chrome finish hang gracefully over the dining table which is a slab of grey and fitted with chairs of the same silhouette as the kitchen bar stools.
The masterpiece of this home is its double-sided natural gas fireplace open to both the kitchen and adjacent living room. This structure was cast of raw concrete and glass bolted with steel riveting creating visual splendor. Flat-screen televisions perched above the fireplace on both sides detract from the organic beauty of this design but this is, afterall, a family home so certain sacrifices must be made. Deep charcoal sofas are contemporary and plush providing comfort as well as contrast to the light floors.
An oenophile’s dream, the wine room is a fully-glazed, walk-in structure just off the main living area. Dramatic in effect, much of the bottles are stored front-to-back on horizontal shelving versus side-by-side in a typical rack.
Up the white-washed oak and glazed staircase, another outstanding focal point awaits. An elongated suspension chandelier with a rectangular canopy features glass globes floating at mixed levels within the double-height space of the stairwell. The effect is breathtaking from both the first floor as well as second story.
The master bedroom and bath feature another open fireplace, this one comprised of concrete tiles which provide a more uniform finish than the natural concrete used in the living area. Sliding glass doors open to an outdoor terrace, while fully-white, floating cabinetry and soaking tub nestled underneath a vast window add a spacious feel. Plentiful custom built-ins provide streamlined storage options.
The Burnaby Residence by Tanya Schoenroth Design is a modern family dream home with uncompromised form plus function.
