SCHMIDT
residence

Designers: Paola Mena and Andrew Guthrie
Software:
AutoCad and Sketch Up
Project:
Renovations Course, Semester 5: Assignment 2
Description:
The Schmidt Residence was a renovations assignment designed for a young growing family. A cape cod style was desired by them and so this is how the design came to be in order to meet their requirements. Cedar shingles, navy blue siding, and a stone veneer at the bottom base of the house gave the home more character and a very lovely cottage feel.

The Stang Residence
was a renovations assignment located in downtown Toronto. The house itself already has so many beautiful features so the renovations were minimal. A balcony area was added to the top exterior floor and the basement was renovated into an income suite.
