The Forest Hills project is a jewel in the heart of North Vancouver’s Edgemont neighbourhood. Twin Lions Contracting transformed the 4717-square-foot project from dark and dated to a light and airy, modern but comfortable place where its owners feel completely at home.

“This reimagined family home is a combination of sophistication, design and functionality,” says Kevin Hatch, president, Twin Lions Contracting. “Each room is a testament to the art of living well, where style and substance meet to elevate the everyday into something truly exceptional.”

The team at Twin Lions Contracting stripped back the 1980s style aesthetic, creating a blank canvas for the client’s contemporary vision–a warm and open space that is both luxurious and approachable.

Mission accomplished. Just steps inside the home, a grand curved staircase, double height ceilings and a beautiful arched walk-through capture the eye and announce there is more to come throughout the home.

“The arched walk-through provides an essential connection to the living room,” Hatch says. “As you ascend the grand staircase, this architectural masterpiece becomes a true focal point, leading the way to generously reimagined bedrooms and bathrooms that are a mixture of sophistication and luxury.”

On the second floor, the primary en suite underwent significant expansion, introducing the space and luxury of a massive walk-in shower, free-standing soaker tub and his and her vanities.

The kitchen makes the homeowner’s every culinary dream come true with top-of-the-line appliances and exquisite face frame millwork.

“This culinary haven is where inspiration seamlessly melds with functionality, turning every meal into an artful experience,” Hatch says.

One of the project’s many highlights is the extensive and meticulous millwork. Completed by TLG Millwerks Ltd, it epitomizes the dramatic difference finishes and materials can make in a home, updating a tired aesthetic to become beautiful and functional while maximizing storage capacity.
