Putting the “Fun” back into “Functionality”:
The first of two courtyard houses, 31 Wellsprings is designed to support the family’s lifestyle, patterns, and habits.
Centred around a courtyard that is enclosed by the entry, garage, and stairs, the home has several features that enhance the daily life of the owners. Upon entering from the cedar-clad garage, a functional mud room with individual lockers welcomes the family home with open arms, ready to catch whatever they want to throw at it after a long day of work and school. In the kitchen, an “appliance garage” hides the family’s collection of cooking tools and gadgets until they are ready to be put into action, and a large island offers plenty of space to hone their culinary skills. In the walk-out basement, a wine cellar houses a collection of refreshments for the next family movie night, and on the second floor, a rooftop deck makes a great space for the next family game night.
