The work we do

mclean residence

Located in Toronto, ON the initial concept was to provide a modern addition to the rear that did not clash with the existing traditional style. With an open concept Kitchen & Dining, this rear yard addition was designed to provide an indoor-outdoor connection, optimal for entertaining. Featuring a low open deck & patio, followed by a long pool, with a pool house to match. The design goal was to integrate the spaces seamlessly, and use subtle materials such as the white ACM panels and wood siding.

project cedarvale

This project was a Japanese-inspired addition & renovation to an existing one-storey home featuring 3 bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms and a private rear family room. The redesign of this narrow residence employs the use of proportion to perceptually appear bigger in space and contrast as a means to amplify natural light in the living areas. The exterior is cladded uniformly with charred wood siding, a Japanese method to weather proof the wood, originated in the 18th century called “Shou Sugi Ban” in which the wood is torched, wire brushed & oiled for a clean but coarse texture

This project features the design of a Scandinavian inspired farmhouse. One of the main design challenges was the requirement to have the public and private spaces completely separated as the homeowners intend to entertain often. The residence was conceptualized as two separate masses; the first being two storeys in height while the latter only one. The main structure boasts of a 2 car garage, 2 bedrooms, a private family room, and an office space with the potential for a third bedroom conversion, while the secondary structure is comprised of an open concept living, dining & kitchen area and the primary bedroom with its own private Japanese garden. A glass breezeway connects the home seamlessly and provides direct access across the front & rear yards

project chasehurst

The homeowners were a young couple looking to upgrade their recently purchased 3 bedroom bungalow to suit the needs of their growing family. We proposed a second storey addition that boasts of 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and an open concept living/dining area that connects seamlessly with the rear garden. The exterior design was proposed as natural modern but with some elements of the famous “prairie style” popularized by Architect Frank Lloyd Wright in which he employed the use of steep roof pitches and extended overhangs, large windows for ample natural lighting, and the use of natural materials as are stone and wood.

With a traditional style interior the foyer invites you through the spaces with a clean circulation and views to the rear yard garden. With an ample sized open concept Great Room and Kitchen this newly built home is ready to entertain. Looking for a clean and simple look but with a modern edge the homeowners decided to go for the combination of white brick and siding complemented with concrete details, but contrasting with black windows and an ACM panel feature
