The Ryan residence is a sleek, light-filled project whose main strength lies in its quest to strike a balance between luxury and restraint, lines and curves, and light and dark. The dark wood flooring guided the design concept of the project’s monochrome look. Reminiscent of a blank canvas, the white walls serve as a backdrop for art pieces to be selected by the occupants.
Dupont Blouin’s architectural design focused on opening up this older postmodern suburban home. The large openings bathe the living spaces in light without compromising the couple’s privacy or that of the four grown children living with them half the time being. The project’s beauty is rooted in the simplicity of form, alignment and choice of materials.
Since the family often entertains, they wanted to provide a distinctive experience for their guests. From the vestibule and the imposing wall that defines the upstairs rooms while serving as an encasement for the stairs, to the impressive dining room and extremely elegant powder room, the architects submitted high-quality proposals full of character that elevate guests’ experience.
