We believe that everyone should be able to inhabit a space that’s well suited to their needs, and remain there as their needs change. Our designs for the Zinfandel apartments are great for everyone and are easily modified to accommodate subtle changes in lifestyle, especially later in life.

 

We designed kitchens that can function conventionally or flex to allow residents to sit and cook, while easily reaching the pull out spice rack or into the fridge. Integrated grab rails in the showers, easy to operate lever handles, adjustable speed door closers; every part of the design is intended to accommodate changing needs in comfort – especially when it comes to heating and cooling.

 

Our innovative use of a highly insulated and air tight wood framed skin completely enveloping a concrete framed structure makes for a very comfortable and stable interior environment. We pay very close attention to detailing to prevent heat loss, the balcony connections are thermally broken, keeping the in-floor heating evenly distributed throughout the concrete floors. On every floor there’s a different amenity room and best of all, a barrier free washroom next to every elevator – we’ve all been there!
