E&H House

The E&H Concept was designed with two key elements, a love for clean modern lines, and natural wood textures. Walking up to the home there is a contrast between stark modern lines and warm natural wood which invites you in. Stepping through the private front entry you are immediately immersed in beautiful natural textures which bring both privacy and warmth to the front entry.

A spacious flex room at the front of the home allows you the luxury of soaking in the ample natural light and street scape. The large dining room allows for seating for twelve comfortably.

The kitchen design allows for an island with seating for six, while accommodating a large work surface, sink, dishwasher, and a large under counter wine cooler. The large pantry and fridge allow for ample storage.

The sunken living room features a ceiling which is open to above with wood accents, creating a towering space, which still makes one feel at home and comfortable. The two storey rear facing windows steam in massive amounts of sunlight to the living room directly, indirectly bathing the entire main floor with light.

Moving to the second floor the master bedroom treats you to a built in bedroom suite, complete with natural grained wardrobe units throughout. The ensuite is complete with an independent makeup desk, water closet room, walk in shower, large soaker tub, and two sinks.

Two large secondary bedrooms, a main bathroom, and laundry room round out the second floor.

Walk up the stairs to the loft space and enjoy indoor/outdoor living between the roof deck and living room with wood burning fireplace.

This is an elegant custom beautiful concept which balances stark modern design with warm inviting natural wood textures. Welcome to urban living at its best.

As you walk inside, you'll notice the spatial connection to outside areas remain - due to the extensive use of glass throughout the space. 

The open concept design allows for a clean and clear path through to the sunken living room, where you'll find integrated millwork to house the audio visual equipment, cleverly designed to accommodate the entertainment appliances without absorbing floor space. The modern gas fireplace beckons you to sit and enjoy the a timeless convenience while cozying up on the couch.

A cohesive flow from the kitchen to the dining area allows for entertaining guests easily with seating for 8-10 people - each having a fantastic view through the large windows. 

The main floor study offers a space to concentrate and have a dedicated space without being separated from the rest of the house in a different room. Complete with custom integrated desk space and shelving for a truly academic feel.   

Upstairs, the bright and airy master bedroom has ample integrated storage, along with a sitting area , dressing area and a fully fixtured ensuite that boasts dual sinks, more integrated storage and a large, walk-in shower.

Second floor laundry, with folding and hanging space and the main bath along with a 6' soaker tub complete the second floor space - offering everything residents could possibly need.

Downstairs, the 9' ceilings open up to a TV area with built in audio/visual equipment storage and media containment. The full bathroom and 4th bedroom, along with integrated storage millwork for seasonal items make this space feel more like a lower second floor than a basement.

Outside, the patio is presented at ground level, allowing for a more private, intimate space to enjoy the modern exterior areas and spaces and natural gas BBQ.

A&D House

The 2,000 Squarefoot A&D House located in the highly desirable Sherbrooke community delivers clean, modern lines executed with warm, organic feeling materials.

"Modern, not Minimal" was the mantra in this build, allowing us to work closely with the client to deliver a truly modern custom home without getting too far from a traditional material feel. 

Contrasting warm and cool elements - wood, brick, glass, and stone are present throughout the home - without becoming the centre piece of any given area. 

Refined, subtle fixtures and ample (but controlled) natural light sources are present throughout the open and clearly defined spaces, offering the ability for form to meet function in every area - keeping the overall feeling open, airy, and allowing for an eclectic mix of modern and traditional pieces to each have a place.    

The well conceived flow of the seamlessly integrated spaces naturally guide you through the covered front entry area into a large, well defined bright foyer area - replete with custom integrated wardrobes for guest storage. Leaving the foyer and proceeding into the kitchen you'll notice the high end touches that are only found in a custom modern luxury cooking and entertaining area. The natural gas range is finished with a feature hood fan centred above the custom stone backsplash.

The significant storage in the custom pantry and cupboard millwork (complete with under cabinet lighting) brilliantly frames the wall mounted microwave and additional wall mounted oven.

A sizeable bar with optional island extension offers ample guest seating for casual events, and serves as a staging area with plenty of counter space to prepare for a formal dinner in the dining room - which has enough space to accommodate a table for 10 or more guests. Flowing out of the kitchen is the open and spacious living room complete with a gas fireplace and custom millwork that covers the A/V equipment when not in use. 

With an open and airy layout, there's always plenty of room for people and family pets to operate, even during times when there is a full house.

The second room upstairs is a study that will double as a guest bedroom - including lots of custom millwork for built in shelving, functional storage, and other space saving options like a murphy bed - ensuring that the most is made of the available space. 

Continuing upward takes you to the rooftop deck complete with a custom entertainment centre, a natural gas fireplace,  BBQ and hot tub, along with plenty of room for entertaining guests - or - just sitting back and enjoying the view from the top.  

Downstairs the 9' ceilings make it hard to believe that you're in a basement. Past the wet-bar, full bathroom, and 3rd full size bedroom you'll find another area for entertaining - complete with custom millwork for the A/V equipment and built in display shelving. Scanning the room you'll notice the ability to walk right out of the basement to the sunken patio cleverly ensconced in it's own private courtyard - offering a calm and private respite available any time.
