Award of Great Merit: 520 Kent Street
Homeowners: Alan Good & Karen Brown
“Immense thought and care went into the rehabilitation and creative re-imagination of this previously distressed and overlooked property. What impresses us the most about this project is the owner’s restraint. The exterior design of the home was kept very minimal, from the simple exterior details to the white paint without accents. The project respected the original building footprints: locating the addition on the site of a long-gone outbuilding. The addition was clearly delineated with different materials that reference the area’s agricultural heritage. One can clearly see how this property must have appeared when it was originally built, yet it exemplifies a modern aesthetic.”
