Toronto-based firm Williamson Williamson designed a sleek multi-generational home that is heavily reliant on geometry and texture. The family residence in Ancaster, Ontario is made to "adapt as its residents age."
The house is a prime example of owner-driven development. Willaimson Williamson arranged the place so that it accommodates the needs of both younger and older people, "creating a unique solution to the complex issue of aging-in-place." Named 'Ancaster Creek,' the multi-generational home employs a number of design principles that allow autonomy—from accommodating L-shaped layout configurations to secluded additional bedrooms for guests or live-in caretakers.
Williamson Williamson used sleek and smooth surfaces in the furnishings and interior design. What might be considered the centerpiece of the communal rooms is a beautiful wooden spiral staircase.
