Contemporary New Build in Oakville
When our clients read Jane Gadd’s article in The Globe and Mail about Sustainable’s healthy and accessible Wellington County Farmhouse, it took them over a year to reach out to us. Having very specific needs and desires required thorough research and inward searching for them. But once they had decided on rebuilding an existing split level into a new, highly energy-efficient, light-filled, and spacious home, they knew the task required an architect like Sustainable.
Our experience with healthy and accessible building allowed us to guide them through a design process where a home was generated that would be passed down through the generations. The house had to appeal to the kids too. A grand living, dining, and kitchen space was designed for all generations of family to entertain, play, and spend quality time together.
Sustainable features include: high clerestory windows that spill light into the 2-storey central hallway; in-floor radiant heating throughout the house; a highly-insulated building shell; and a fully-accessible ground floor, that will meet the family’s needs well into the future.
