In this modern home plan we have a perfect balance of family connection and private seclusion – two outer masonry walls serve to contain space, while floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home offer transparency, creating a calming sense of connectedness. This sense of connectedness is further enhanced by the continuation of ceiling surfaces to the outside of the home. These surfaces extend out as canopies which strongly define the upper level form, while accentuating the natural, open qualities of the ground floor.

With large floor-to-ceiling windows, spaces are bathed in warm sunlight. Openings in the roof canopy and architectural wall screenings let light dance throughout the home. The forecourt roof canopy frames the sky, creating a dramatic sense of occasion for visitors, while light filters through brick screening, casting dynamic architectural shadows throughout the interior. In all, this creates a welcome lightness, and comforting sense of place.
A balanced lifestyle is encouraged with a series of alfresco and garden spaces, encouraging the outdoors, in. The living area is surrounded by lush greenery, creating your own private Zen garden – the perfect place to sip tea in the afternoon. Bask in sunshine on the rear terrace – with generous proportions yet perfect privacy; it provides the ideal backdrop for outdoor entertaining, a children’s playground or summer boardgames. With its dramatic roof extension, the forecourt evokes the feeling of a boutique hotel. Add a table and chairs and it becomes an extension of the living room – the ideal perch to enjoy your morning coffee. At night, let the party spill out as guests socialize while others arrive and wander through this enchanting domestic realm.
The lower floor plan offers warm, light-filled expanses to coalesce, with outside roof overhangs tempering heat transfer, ensuring sundrenched warmth and comfort throughout. Supporting the feeling of openness, amenities and utilities are carefully tucked away for privacy, but within arm’s reach. Located near the back of the house, the mud room, washroom, pantry and storage spaces are out of sight, yet practically located. This utilitarian zone serves to separate the flex room from the rest of the social areas, and to create a defined, functional rear entrance area.
The upper floor plan plays host to a slumberous sanctuary and a large family room with direct access to a rooftop deck. There’s ample accommodation and generous full-width windows in the kids’ bedrooms, while the second floor provides a retreat for quiet respite in the evenings (or to keep rambunctious family members occupied). This hideaway is an ideal place to watch a family movie or unwind while the children are in bed, conveniently located near the bedrooms and laundry – should you need to throw a load on. Fold clothes as you watch TV, then pack them away easily with accessible closets on the same floor.
With expansive windows, the master bedroom is an exhibition of light and space. Generously proportioned, the space allows ample room for a king-size bed and sitting area, lending itself to the pleasures of beginning and ending your day. The striking yet calming master ensuite features double sinks, a freestanding soaker tub, large tiled shower, and an enclosed toilet room. Think of it as your own personal day spa.
Just because your home’s plan may be preconceived, doesn’t mean its features are presupposed.
