2458 James Street

2458 James Street was purchased by contractor Mike Burns in the winter of 2011. The weathered north end Halifax residence was designed to house a ground floor wood shop facility and a second floor live/work space. The house was immediately gutted to the studs and was cleared to be two full floors of open concept space. Large windows on both ends, a large garage door and two iconic exterior volumes recharge the house with a modern vocabulary. The exterior was painted a dark grey and the material palette includes concrete, salvaged steel, birch plywood, weathered pine and large expanses of sheet aluminum.
