Scarborough House was a contemporary challenge as the design process debate centred around—“to build new or not to build new, that is the question”. The project ended up embracing the existing structure, challenging our design team to work in stride with the spatial conditions of the 1980’s build (completion Spring 2014). Clean, simple lines, enhanced by wood details both on the exterior and interior elevate this house to a contemporary aesthetic. The color palette and millwork detailing of the interiors is earthy, casual, luxurious, sophisticated—Shugarman’s design sensibility through and through. The spaces are carefully ordered, orchestrating the light of a moody and ever changing Calgary climate.
