This is a multi-unit Kitsilano renovation started life as a 4-unit house.

Seeking to increase the living space of their home, the clients tasked Best Builders with the bold task of adding a completely new storey to an existing house.

 Best Builders removed the roof, added another storey, and created a fifth unit that encompassed the entire top floor to make a 4800 square foot house. The exterior was completely re-done, keeping the design within the heritage of the area. Seismic and structural upgrades were done throughout to bring up to new engineering standards.
