Caledon Hills Country Home

This house is located in the Caledon Hills on farmland which is still cultivated.

The landscape is subtle compared to some of our more northern projects located on rugged sites in the Canadian Shield. The goal was to create a house which not only fit into the landscape but also integrates the interior with the exterior.

The main floor is configured as the entry foyer, mudroom, great room, screened porch and master suite, and the lower level has three bedrooms, a family room and games room below the second porch, all with maximized daylight in a walk-out condition.

Dufferin Lake Residence

This property encompasses a valley created by a natural watershed, resolving itself into a small lake surrounded by steep, wooded, sheltering hills.

The environmentally sensitive site demanded a design proposal confined to a pre-existing development footprint. The design team focused on a solution that would reinforce the compositional beauty of the site through the use of natural materials and simple geometric planes, and spaces in a highly transparent configuration.

In conjunction with a new two-storey vacation home on the site, the project also included the design of a small boathouse pavilion on the lake. The richness and warmth of the wood reinforces the connection to the site as a re-interpretation of the verdant natural setting outside.
