Elegant design thrives in the prose of everyday life. It is created through quiet luxury and palpable quality, attention to detail and well-crafted functionality. It comes into its own in the warmth and joy of a family home.

The 650m2 home, spread over three storeys above ground and two levels of basement, is especially designed to complement the rhythm of life within its walls. It is inhabited by ample light and a neutral yet warm palette of colours and textures. It avoids austerity in favour of mindfulness and creates purposeful angles to savour art and artefacts, collected and gifted over years of work within diverse cultures.

From hand-carved shields to a Haida Gwaii totem pole, personal details are thoughtfully composed to capture the essence of the life this family has built for itself. The result is a legacy home, in the truest sense of the words.
