Moraine House

Caledon, Ontario

The elongated form of this home straddles a sculptural moraine in Caledon, Ontario. Extensive glass offers panoramic views of the rolling terrain while providing an immediate and intimate connection with the gardens and outdoor activity areas of the house. Overhead, timber shade structures extend the form of the house while creating a transition to the gardens.

Inside, a grand piano takes centre stage. Diffused sky light filters down along the centre spine of the home and illuminates a bellied ceiling which also reflects sound from the stage to adjacent rooms. Horizontal grained, dark walnut cabinetry unifies the kitchen, piano area and media room.

Christopher’s work is truly inspired. He balanced the rhythm of nature with the needs of our lifestyle. For us he not only created the most beautiful house we could imagine, but also a space we can call home.
