Ocean Front

of

Designer: Grant + Sinclair Architects

Location: Vancouver, CA

Featured on the prestigious Canadian ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN magazine, the ocean front residence steals your heart with a bundle of lovely contradictions. Apart from a fantastic view of the ocean through a retractable door that leads to the exterior pool, the pool itself gives the home a very relaxed and ultra-cool look. Then you step into the sumptuous interiors that exude cozy warmth with the usage of Beechwood floor and ceiling, Pennsylvania bluestone walls and excellent use of glass. Apart from the visual grandeur and the apparent aesthetics, the home also is highly energy efficient with a geothermal system, solar panels for energy, and rainwater harvesting system in place.

Location: Yorkville, Toronto CA

Designer: Taylor Smith

the unique presence (3500 square feet) is only enhanced by a beautiful dark exterior that gets grander as you step inside. With one wall opening up into a private courtyard adored in Ipe decking with a pool and a hot tub and with spacious interiors, it’s the generous use of glass and stone along with modern accessories that add further to the dazzle of the beautiful adobe.
