Expanding the flow of light with windows.
This renovation of an old Toronto house took this staircase from dark and dim to light and airy. "It was an exercise in getting as much natural light into this space as possible," explains Ingrid. "We installed skylights, clerestory windows and added glass into the front door to maximize the light. The finishes such as the stone flooring and painting original wood panelling white help to spread the light into the centre of the house to create a welcoming entry."
