1255 project by Omar Gandhi Architect reimagines the concept of the traditional family home. Situated on property just north of Lake Ontario in the Greater Toronto Area, the home uses the surrounding topography to create a stronger connection to nature—something the clients were keen to integrate into their home. The environment in which this home resides feels far removed from suburbia; instead, it is reminiscent of a cottage retreat.
Designed by Omar Gandhi Architect, which has offices in Halifax and Toronto, Schlotfeldt Residence is a compact contradiction that brings modernist luxury to rugged alpine living.
The illustrious firm of Omar Gandhi (OGA) has made waves again in the Canadian architecture scene with this home, built to be Gandhi’s own residence in the north of Halifax.
FROM THE ARCHIVE: Omar Gandhi’s portfolio of architecture highlights the spirit of its East Coast surroundings. Expanding his Halifax-based practice to Toronto, Gandhi continues to create structures that define perfection in simplicity.
