It can be quite a tricky balancing act for architects to achieve a fresh design that is compatible with a building's original form. We look inside of three unusual renovations. 1. Montreal architect Henri Cleinge has made a former wine storage facility into a modern home and office. 2. The complete overhaul of a traditional Edwardian row home in Crouch End London by Niall McLaughlin and his team turned a dreary, poorly lit and designed house into a modern mansion. 3. Paul duBellet Kariouk's renovation of an Ottawa area apartment uses an innovative approach of sliding walls and doors. This makes it possible for the space to change from an open concept, to a more private retreat.
