Land & Buildings Must Be Intimately Connected

A home should be connected to the land. ⁠

Picture this: when you water the ground, it should seem like the home sprouted out.⁠

Connecting people to the earth is at the core of our design philosophy. By seamlessly blending materials, inside and out, and embracing the land with integrated features, we create homes that feel rooted, timeless, and offer comfort beyond trends.⁠

When you connect a home to the land, you connect it to the neighbourhood, and that’s how you make a home feel like it has always belonged.

This transitional home is nestled in the heavily-wooded Lorne Park Estates. A neighbourhood originally intended to be cottage country, the area remains a secluded natural oasis. So it was only appropriate that this home design pay respect to its property’s roots.⁠

The design borrows heavily from the craftsman style through its large decorated gables, and rich blend of natural materials in a palette that borrows from its surroundings, seamlessly integrating the home within the trees. A timber-framed front porch and copper-roofed corner are standout features, but the home really embraces its cottage country surroundings as you approach the rear. Anchored by a three-storey stone chimney, the home’s side elevation resembles a classic Muskoka retreat, featuring large glass gables and board and batten siding.⁠
