Melwood Residence – The Getaway
The Getaway is a versatile outdoor space designed with inspiration drawn from the pages of Architectural Digest. The 20’ x 30’ lap pool is accompanied by a swim-up lounge area for keeping cool on Ottawa’s humid summer afternoons. The outdoor theatre was designed to host movie nights under the stars, complete with a sophisticated home automation system. A custom concrete fire bowl and lounge area makes for a perfect spot to enjoy cocktails and conversation. The two terraces, one off of the master suite, the other off of the gym, overlook this luxurious backyard retreat—an ideal getaway, without having to leave the comfort of home.
Best Custom Bathroom and Powder Room – 2018
This dramatic space is covered in rich cigar-stained walnut panels, contrasted by crisp white fixtures. The rich wood tones are anchored by a richly textured slate tiled floor. The gold and chrome accents act like jewelry, adding a touch of elegance. The overall effect of the room is of serenity and opulence.

A Teak Dream
A Teak Dream balances modern design, with mid-century flair. Discerning observers will notice the teak-toned walnut, flat-slab cabinetry adds warmth and character to this sun-filled space, while the use of natural hardwood on the floors draws out subtle sap hues. The layout of this room requires exacting precision, as the task lighting is mounted beneath the upper cabinets, masterfully hidden by walnut undermount paneling. Whether hosting a party or preparing an intimate dinner for two, A Teak Dream is the ideal spot to sit, sip and relax.
