Set on one of the most prominent properties in a desirable urban neighbourhood, this home was designed to lead by example.
With this project, we wanted to illustrate how a modern family home can be integrated seamlessly into an established context, and can withstand the test of time to become an integral part of the evolving urban fabric.
It’s a mid-century modern home, but it incorporates rooflines, colours and details like a large front porch that have been extensively used in the neighbourhood for years. The home is meant for indoor/outdoor living, with interior spaces that flow out onto large terraces under deep eaves. Large windows offer views of adjacent parkland and trees, and a Columnar Aspen grows up through a unique tree well over the front porch.
