Beaches House is a new three-storey residence in the Beaches neighbourhood of Toronto.
Responsible for the interior design, our studio was in charge of creating a more holistic vision and atmosphere for the interior spaces through materiality, detailing, built-in furnishings, and minor layout modifications.
Given its proximity to Kew Beach in Toronto’s East End, the clients were looking for a modern interpretation of the beach house typology. To achieve this, we worked primarily with traditional elements such as exposed structure; soft, airy tones; and wainscoting. Pushing this language further, and responding to the prominent central staircase, we designed the railing pickets and the wainscoting to create a sense of rhythm, recalling the gentle metronome of crashing waves on the shoreline.
Currently under construction. Expected completion: October 2021.
