Description by architect: Wedged between a creek setback and a country road the site was endowed with the natural beauty of this pristine setting. The owner was seeking an informal yet gracious family house for indoor-outdoor living centered around a courtyard perfect for her vegetables and chickens. The design is orchestrated along a dramatic axis providing a sight line from the far end of the barn to the infinity pool edge over 300’ away that sets the tone for the inspired entrance into the great room. Spaces flow through large openings of glass and tall sliding doors that allow the interior to become the exterior. Big spaces and keen siting come together to create a dramatic experience.

The original, gambrel-roofed home in Waldoboro, Maine was built in the 1980s and set back from the water a few hundred feet. The home needed a major update and expansion, and the owners wanted to really make it a place that reflected their family spirit.
Located in the Beaches neighbourhood in Toronto’s East End, the original structure was a two-storey 1,250 SF (139m2) building renovated into a three-storey 1,950 SF (178m2) residence achieved by converting the existing attic space into a master bedroom with ensuite and adding a two-storey rear extension.
Taking cues from the original 1-acre site and existing live oak trees, this 8,500 square foot North Dallas house with a traditional "H" layout is very solid, and in some ways, what you expect. While the design is punctuated with surprises like an interior courtyard and visual sight lines in unexpected places, rooms are generally where they are supposed to be.
