The Refined Townhome

A Blend of Modern and Traditional



Part of the home’s charm is the neighborhood’s traditional exterior design contrasting with design for today’s active lifestyle inside. To achieve this cosmopolitan energy, this large, contemporary townhouse features a clean-lined open plan incorporating modern finishes. Located in the heart of the neighborhood’s metro environment, the exterior blends with the historically significant design of the Peninsula Neighborhood’s everyday backdrop. Abundant windows throughout the home bring ample light into the traditional architecture.  This allows glimpses from the front of the house to the woodlands at the rear. In fact, considerable natural light brightens the entire central volume.






While the traditional vernacular was used to develop the building envelope, the interior was an opportunity for a modern twist. A change in the design composition from the entry adds visual interest and helps define the functions within. Large open-plan living areas allow for entertaining but can also be subdivided by furniture placement to provide more intimate spaces. To function with today’s busy lifestyle, the home also needed to be suitably appointed with high-end finishes.








A handsome tiled fireplace creates a strong focal point and adds a contemporary feature to the wall. The white-painted trim with mitered planks that were used to exaggerate the length along the baseboards and encase the windows to create a greater feeling of volume and light. Craftsman-styled cabinetry in a dark stain with low-maintenance, bacterial static white Quartz counters that center the living space to define the kitchen area. Soft palettes complement the material and form of the contemporary design while designer light fixtures add a touch of individuality to the space. Dark-stained hardwood-like laminate floors contrast with soft grays and alabaster (white) painted trim. Nice amenities were the underlying impetus to the design, and the interior was transformed into a luxury condominium. The home’s design facilitates ease and pleasure while creating a real sense of personality.
