“Local firm RSAAW transformed the family home into a bright and airy space by connecting its previously separated two levels and painting the gallery-like interior in white.
A slanted roof features large skylights that emphasise the central atrium space of the open-plan ground floor. Prior to the renovation, this level was a mortgage helper suite.
"Family spaces were somewhat cloistered, with minimal natural light entering key areas," said RSAAW.
Berkley House's connected levels are anchored by a double-height library formed by stacked boxes of light wood. The wooden bookcase is built into the staircase linking the levels together.”

“A spacious double-height library was created as part of the renovation of this Vancouver home.

Formed by stacked boxes of light wood, the wooden bookcase is built into the matching staircase that links the house's two levels together.”
