Condominium Renovation

2004 renovation of an 80's built ski condo - Interiors by Manie Laird and Jody, project managed by Jody

The design challenge here was cramped space, tiny bedrooms that felt like elevator shafts and a long and narrow mezzanine space that was not efficiently utilized.
This TV armoire is built into the bedroom space behind to give much needed space to the living room.  The 3 high interior windows bring down the scale to the tall wall.
I worked with a Calgary designer on this one.  She created the plans and I managed the renovations including all the furniture, most of it custom.
Condominium Renovation
We removed the closets and replaced them with custom armoires in order to give the small bedrooms a feeling of more space
Condominium Renovation
Condominium Renovation
Narrow stairwell is lined with glass to prevent luggage from scraping the walls.  The airy iron railing provides a few more inches of space over the previous pony wall.
This was the solution for the narrow mezanine.  It now sleeps six people somewhat privately.
Built in sofa for watching television or playing board games.
Condominium Renovation
The site to the living room below is still open but the glass prevents the sound from spilling over.

The dining area is the entry to this condo so we built attractive storage lockers.
