Good design is a founding principle for Great Gulf and so is innovation. On acquiring a site in the GTA’s upscale Oakville neighbourhood, Great Gulf dared to lead with innovative design.
Eschewing the traditional architecture and interior design that has typified developments in the area for some time, Great Gulf invited us to partner with them in creating Oakville’s first transitional development, a significant departure from ‘business as usual’.
Complementing the clean, bold architectural streetscape of the townhouses, the interiors feature modern design elements married with traditional colours and finishes. Real veneer adorns the cabinets while quartz countertops and concealed appliances all work to make the spaces feel sleek and contemporary.
Understanding that the Oakville townhouse buyer wants the kitchen to feel like the heart of the home, we redesigned the interior layouts to take kitchens off the wall. Using a modular concept, the kitchens ‘float’ in the centre of the space seamlessly creating a relaxed and informal family atmosphere on one side and allowing for a more formal dining space on the other. With lines forming at the sales centre on opening weekend, Great Gulf went on to sell out the first release of townhouses within five weeks of launching the development.
