Hoggs Hollow Cottage

Location: North York

We started with an existing mid-90’s two story home and transformed it into a contemporary architectural piece that focuses on evoking a feeling of natural openness throughout. The highlight exterior feature of this home is Brazillian nut wood that when paired with interior accent lights has an amber like glow. Using the existing foundation and walls above grade, the orginal brick was covered with additional insulation and an interior spray foam treatment.

The Design Process

1. Schematic Design starts with a property zoning review and design intake meeting. We establish project goals and review your overall requirements to make your project uniquely yours.

2. Line Drawings encompass the overall footprint and layout of the home. Paired with exterior perspective sketches, this part in the design process is where the home is first taken from a concept to an accurate representation.

3. 2D Renderings is when exterior materials are first seen on the exterior of your home. This meeting is paired with material selections and further detailed floor plans.

4. 3D Renderings depict the finished exterior design and interior floor plans of your home in realistic 3D renderings. Daytime and nighttime renders with multiple perspectives give a complete overview of the finished product before construction.
