The black tiles are not only on the front of the home, but also wrap around to the side, reflecting various architectural details.

The Stairs

Stepping inside, and you’re immediately greeted by a recycled three-storey brick wall that follows the staircase up, and compliments the steel beam elements on display throughout the home.

The Living Room

The living room looks out onto the street through black-framed windows and embraces the old and new structural elements instead of hiding them.

The Kitchen + Courtyard

The kitchen, which separates the living room from the dining area and courtyard, has matte black cabinets, black countertops, a mirrored backsplash, and a long island. The courtyard is accessible through floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and features natural stones, black steel-capped tall wood panels, and reused beams that were fire damaged in the warehouse’s previous life.
