Open Concept Dining ROom

New build home designed for a client that spends most of his days travelling for work. When home with his pup, he wants to relax by enjoying good food and wine with his friends. Not giving me much creative direction, I found cues for inspiration within his meticulously put together suit, shirt and tie attire during our meetings, along with his whimsical sock collection.

The home is an inner-city infill, where we had to maximize a long and narrow lot. It is a two-storey home with a main floor office, kitchen, dining room, living room, mudroom and powder room. Upstairs has the master bedroom and ensuite, along with two guest bedrooms, bathroom and laundry room. The basement consists of a movie theatre, bar, gym, guest bedroom, bathroom and storage room.

Dining Room Details


A clean lined, black & white kitchen with natural wood details to keep it less formal. Lots of organized storage with pull-out drawers, oversized upper cabinets and a full height fridge and pantry wall.

Open Concept Kitchen & Dining


A metal slatted stair wall divides the kitchen from the staircase. Not being a solid wall, it allows natural light from the skylights to shine through during the day.

2nd Level Hallway

A custom staircase was designed to flawlessly integrate with the slatted metal wall and railing on the second level. The landing doubles as a sitting spot across from the kitchen and cookbook storage.

The 2nd level oversized hallway is a naturally bright spot for reading, with two large skylights.

Master Bedroom

Custom drapery filters natural light during the day and provides complete blackout at night. A recessed wall shelf adds storage and easy access to all new and favourite books before bed.

The master ensuite was designed to feel like a European sauna. A large skylight provides beautiful natural light while at night, LED lighting can be controlled to set the mood for either relaxing in the soaker tub or enjoying the eucalyptus steam shower.
