GERRITS HILLSIDE RESIDENCE - This was the first residence we designed for the Gerrits. Eric is a master builder and his wife Vicki is an interior designer. (Homescape Building & Design Inc.) The concept was to make the home feel like it was carved out of the tall clay embankment that it was sited on. We colour matched the acrylic stucco to the clay. The curving "sail-like" structures add a stunning sense of character and fun to the overall theme. Eric was excited to take on the challenge of framing the curves. The Gerrits wanted something original and they gave me an open palette to create this special piece of art-itecture. At the end of the day the dramatic connection to the water view made for a peaceful resort like environment to come home to.
