The client, a prominent Canadian artist (Christopher Griffin), hired our firm to help him turn an existing prairie style home with a commercial extension, built in 1901 as a confectionery, into a residence he and his family could enjoy while also housing his wife's organic spa and boutique. It was essential to create an architectural design that would produce cohesion between the existing structure, the new design elements as well as the art that the client wanted to incorporate into the exterior walls of the building (depicting scenes of nature). Finding an appropriate construction medium that would display the client's artistic vision on the exterior of the house was crucial. Incorporating sustainable elements and reclaimed materials was of major priority in the design from the outset.
