Scarborough Village Villa #19

Villa # 19 is a modern 2 stories house designed by Studio Quadrant, perched above Scarborough Village on the Ontario Lake. 

The design maintains sightlines from the backyard to the open front yard with a minimal structure of glass and steel. Atop the two-story, transparent box,  and the flat roof.

The main level contains the main living spaces – living room, kitchen, family room, dining room, office, guest suite – and offers views in every direction. A single piece steel frame supports the floating white oak staircase

From the backyard, the full height of the house is exposed, although it is placement on the  sloped site to the east adds a sense of intimacy to the lower level. A custom deck leads you to the family room and living room open directly to the patio and pool.

A sophisticated “home brain” allows the owners to remotely control all aspects of the house via their iPad or touchscreens on each floor: lights, shades, thermostats, and audio systems. Mechanized curtains can be lowered in individual sections throughout the house as needed to allow for privacy or to control light levels. Hot water, radiant floor heat and air-conditioning is provided from a ground source heat pump.

On the main level, most of the places are pulled to the core, freeing exterior walls from obstruction. As a result, 360º unimpeded views to the backyard, pool, the sky, and trees saturate all living spaces. A spacious, deck is punched in the east elevation; sliding doors open wide to create continuous flow between living, dining, and outdoor areas.

Regardless of the unpredictable weather, the house is filled with natural light
