The house, conceived by Williamson Williamson Architects as two distinct residences for a couple and their elderly parents, sits on a wide, verdant lot backing onto Ancaster Creek.

The linear dining room offers sweeping views of the landscape.

The living room features a honed travertine fireplace and oak wall. A connected hallway leads around a softened corner and draws the family together.

The double-height kitchen with pyramidal ceiling.

The living room is relatively compact in winter, but in summer months it extends outside under the cantilevered upper floor, doubling in size. These social spaces are shared by the extended family.

 
The laminated-plywood spiral staircase connects the living room to the second-floor master suite, creating drama and celebrating the connection between floors. The curvature opens as it rises and becomes the ceiling of the adjacent wing.


A guest room adjacent to the mother’s quarters can also provide onsite accommodation for a future live-in caregiver.
