Kariouk Associates have designed the Echo House in Ottawa, Canada; which involved renovating an existing 1924 Victorian-style house into an updated contemporary home. The Echo House by Kariouk Associates Task: To marry eighty-four years of history by integrating a contemporary, open and functional living space inside a 1924 landmark that overlooks the Rideau Canal. Project Challenge: The starting point for this renovation was a modest Victorian home in poor condition, whose rooms with small windows and dark interior spaces were separated from one another, as was typical of homes built in an era when privacy was a cultural priority. In another gesture to Victorian public decorum, the arrangement of the existing interior spaces reinforced the antiquated ideal that work life and family life should be kept distinct.
