Victorian Heritage Home
Located on a historic street in Guelph’s Sunny Acres, the Brooker residence is located in a neighbourhood of heritage homes. The owners, Michael and Nicole Brooker, commissioned ATA to design a new 4,000-square-foot house that would replicate the Victorian-era architecture they desired.
The house was built with historically accurate proportions and exterior elements to fit seamlessly within the neighborhood. Victorian details carried over into the interior but not at the expense of modern conveniences, which included an open kitchen, a basement exercise room with a sauna and a small elevator.
ATA worked closely with the Brookers and the builder (Lindsay Construction Services) to ensure that historic details – including brickwork, decorative trim and railings – were as authentic as possible.
