For a client who wanted to transform his old 135-square-metre home amid a dense urban setting into a bright, modern space, architect Heather Dubbeldam carved out a sense of capaciousness via an open plan and varied ceiling heights. The L‑shaped interior also draws the eye out to the intimate back garden, with millwork sporting horizontal lines of rift-cut white oak, a fireplace clad in stacked strips of felt, and porcelain tiles laid in a striated pattern. The result is a pleasing optical illusion: more space, same footprint. ­dubbeldam.ca
