Mastromatteo House Renovation

Located in the River Heights neighbourhood of Saskatoon, this single family residence faces onto the parkway, with unobstructed views of North Saskatchewan River. In 2009, an addition and complete exterior renovation was completed to the existing home.

Originally, the house had a stucco exterior finish with a monochromatic colour scheme. The owner wished to change its appearance and redevelop the interior, as well as add functional space. Enhancing the entrance, replacing and redesigning all exterior windows and locations, and replacing exterior finishes with masonry, and interior design was undertaken, including adding a third car garage space.

Masonry was chosen to give the house style and elegance, longevity and permanence. The idea of the tower comes from the typical Romanesque Tower, and forms the new entrance with feature window, and a second floor library space. Split-face Tyndall Stone gives prominence to the entrance, contrasting with the new red brick emphasizing the solid character of the remainder of the residence. Tyndall Stone was also brought inside the house, cladding a beautiful feature wall and fireplace. Front driveway was replaced with masonry, contrasting the brick cladding with the neutral buff colour of the pavement stone and new landscape elements.
