The Igloo

The precise flush lines throughout this Gastown condominium required plenty of forethought and planning, intense coordination with multiple trades and meticulous construction.

Complicated and precise construction fashioned the clean finished appearance of the kitchen. To create the reveals and smooth lines, we hid fixtures and mechanical components behind the wall. Pre-planning and coordination with the stone fabricator, millworker, appliance and backsplash installers and drywall trades guaranteed the flush surfaces we desired.
Following a trial-and-error approach to achieve the perfect placement of the Bocci glass light fixture, we spent countless hours fine-tuning with the designer, electrician and carpenter before and after installation. Floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall millwork, providing ample hidden storage, required precision scribing and hours of adjusting.

Plug perfection

The Bocci 22-series plug in the custom stone gable required hours of collaboration between the stone fabricator, millworker, carpenters, electricians. There was zero room for error. Properly sequencing the work involved was crucial, as the routering, junction box preparation and cabinetry construction all had to allow for the drawer behind to operate without any interference with the plug box. Preparation for the plumbing fixture required innovative forethought, and we sequenced the steps of its installation for a flush and precise appearance.

Bathroom integrity

While clean, perfect lines give this bathroom its simplistic modern look, installing the custom stone counter above a floating piece of solid wood millwork took a lot of thought and preparation beforehand. The stone-wrapped backsplash and wall cladding have integrated structural supports for the floating counter and cabinet, and the hidden plumbing fixture and drain keep the space tidy in line with the design requirements. To achieve the flush drywall to stone transition in a small space near a door opening, we had to carefully consider and account for varying depths of materials.
