Waterloo Region, New Home

The Glass House

This home is in a class of its own. Exceptional Design and Build. Winner of two 2022 Canadian Home Builder's Awards and winner of the 2023 Provincial Home Builder's Award for Best Custom Home.

Modern, Minimalist Design.

The client had a clear design intent for this home - use of concrete, glass, natural materials, and light. This dictated a footprint that is narrow and linear, curtain-wall glass, and selected commercial-grade finishes on the exterior for a clean aesthetic appeal. Interior space is expansive, limited black and white color palette, architectural concrete feature wall, hard surfaces, and luxury cabinets with integrated appliances for simplistic presentation.

Endless views and full privacy.

The home is located on beautiful farm land, hidden behind trees. 30 acres of land was raised 3 meters to maximize the view and the home stands proud on the hill. Black framed curtain wall windows, 10' by 10' oversized doors, and multiple balconies with floating glass systems capture views. Build included 4-season tiled pool, pool house, detached garage with studio and underground tunnel to house, and landscape construction.

Features for family life.

The home is well thought out and functional for a young family. Bedroom suites on NE side, expansive family room and kitchen in the center, attached garage, and tunnel to detached garage and studio. Control4 Automation sensors control the home simplifying entry, security, lighting, heating, entertainment, and pool. Features include a luxury primary suite, 4-seasons outdoor pool, hottub, garage capacity for 20 cars, home entertainment, gym, and a well-appointed front entrance.
