“The model has clean lines without being austere. The sophisticated colour palate of greys with touches of blue is soothing and soft. And of course, there’s a lot of white, which I consider the perfect colour. Everything looks great against a white background.”
CHAZ on Charles Condominium: A Study in Lush Minimalism
December 21, 2010
A few weeks ago we visited the CHAZ on Charles [map] by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd. sales centre and were enthused by what we saw. Now we’re bringing you some more information to fill you in on the model suite’s specs.
Let’s start with the basics: The model-suite is the Sarti 757 sq. foot one-bedroom plus den model. Ceiling heights range from 9′ to 10′, as they will in the actual building.
But enough with the numbers – what does it look like?
Well, it looks awesome. The suite is appointed by Cecconi Simone Inc. with a nod to what is known as ‘lush minimalism.’ Elaine Cecconi herself explains:
And having seen the model suite, it’s hard to argue.
The kitchen is a clever mix of refined detail and clever design. Dark grey cabinets contrast with the lighter grey of the wood laminate floors. The cabinets allow for maximum shelving and the overall set-up of the kitchen is as intuitive as the dash of a nice car.
But you have eyes, presumably, see for yourself:
Check the slick floors
Smart and smart-lookin’ kitchen
The building is designed so that there are eight corners on every floor, allowing nearly every suite to boast corner glass in the living room
Note the ‘floating’ shelves
Other highlights include a 6′-high recessed medicine cabinet in the bathroom (think about how many bottles of shampoo you could fit in there!), and edge-lit, acrylic shelves in the master bedroom that are cantilevered to look like they’re floating.
