House H - Interior Design

Item details

We worked alongside Chris Collaris Architects to design this sleek and contemporary home.

A quote from the Arch Daily Article by Maria Francisca Gonzalez regarding the project:
"Every single space on the floor plan has a different connection and orientation to the outside. With green bean fields and woods the view is different in every room. The villa is specifically designed on the climate in Southwest Ontario. Summers can be very hot and winters are always cold with lots of snow. The villa has been designed with a big canopy stretching longer and shorter in different directions. The canopy is keeping the intense sun light and warmth out of the house in summer, but allowing it in again in winter."

"The majority of the materials used in the villa are coming from local production areas. The natural stone of the floors (inside and outside) and the facades are coming from a quarry in Ontario. The Douglas fir cladding of the canopy is coming from a local forest and some furniture pieces (the coat rack and dining table) are even made with wood of old trees from the plot. The big green roof (Liveroof Ontario) has been produced on the fields of the green nursery next to the plot. Making as much as possible with sources and materials from a local area was important to the client, echoing the joy of the social nearness of the bigger family with all children and grandchildren. In this way, the villa found its destiny as a future proof sustainable inheritance of the whole family, made with things which were pleasantly close."
