Shean Architects as Architects

Individuals who have traveled the world with exquisite taste can hope that when travel starts to slow down, they can rely on the sublime comfort of home to satisfy. With only a small expansion of space but precise attention to detail, the craft of building now shines through in this home in Old Ottawa South.

Carefully directed light cascades across the many treasures and details of the design are carefully thought out to complement rather than force the conversation. The temperate approach allows the existing structure to seamlessly evolve with the changes, allowing the new details and craftsmanship in the house to expand the spatial conversation. The rear façade continues to evoke the eloquence of detail - with a natural eastern white cedar screen and large sliding doors, the exterior receives the western light to reveal subtle tones in texture, communicating intimately with the house.

Every material is chosen meticulously yet lovingly to, speak together and stand-alone in eloquence at the same time, perfectly coinciding with the taste expected of an articulate artist.
