Two projects by Dubbeldam Design

I really enjoy working with Heather Dubbeldam. The two recent projects by her studio where a great fun to shoot. Shooting with Heather is a collaborative process where we discuss, suggest, tweak, argue, lough, compose and recompose before reaching the final shot.

Sky Garden House - This project receive an OAA design excellence award as well as the Architizer A+ popular choice award in the residential  Interiors category. 
From the architect: "Situated on a narrow lot in an older Toronto neighborhood, the Skygarden House provides outdoor living spaces on multiple levels to address the owners’ desire for a better connection to the home’s natural surroundings. The owners used to spend their weekends at their country home, located next to a stream and surrounded by trees so they wanted their new home in the city to mimic this bucolic experience in an urban environment."

Travelzoo Office - this project already received two honoree awards at Interior Design Magazine's MakeItWork awards in San Francisco.

From the Architect: "The design was inspired by travel destinations and modes but also features the dramatic cityscape of downtown Toronto. The conference and lunch-room volumes allude to modes and nodes of high-speed transport such as train stations and airports; the huddle rooms and lounge areas suggest casual destinations such as cabins, parks and beaches. Travelzoo’s brand colours, red for action and blue for tranquility, are combined with touches of bold contrasting colours to enliven the space."
