The Craftsman Condominium Residences are all about the elegance of the basics. VANDYK Group of Companies is creating a unique mid-rise project in Clarkson Village that will combine the main elements of nature – water, air and fire.
It’s a fitting theme, given the project’s location at 1575 Lakeshore Road West, close to the Mississauga waterfront and nearby green spaces such as Rattray Marsh Conservation Area.
“The driving force behind the architecture was to promote lifestyle of this area,” said Domenic Zita, Executive Vice President of VANDYK. “To that end, we brought the nature of its surrounding natural environment inside the core of the development.”
The project will feature expansive landscaping, courtyards and walkways to better incorporate the outdoors into the everyday life of residents. The use of warm woods and natural colours will also help bring the outside into the suites and common areaz.
“We designed ground floor suites with patios facing large courtyards,” said Zita. “These will be beautifully landscaped so they act as private gardens, yet at the same time are open enough to promote engagement and interaction amongst neighbours. Large and expansive balconies are featured off suites on higher floors, which become extensions of residents’ private space.”
At its core, the condo’s design aesthetic is a tribute to master architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who was inspired by the Arts and Crafts architectural style of the early 20th century. It’s not just how The Craftsman got its name, but a force that literally shapes the structure. The three four-storey wings that make up the project connect together to form a “W.”
Made up of 300 units altogether, VANDYK took into account all the little details of daily life. In the suite layout and design, special consideration was given to logical furniture placement, the flow of personal space, placement of doors, and orientation of light fixtures and electrical outlets. It might sound basic, but it’s touches like this that bring function and style to each individual home.
The Craftsman will also feature a grand three-storey high lobby with floor to ceiling windows, a rooftop terrace with a fire pit, and a waterfall feature. Other amenities include a fitness centre and party room.
Suites start from the $300,000s and range in size from 605 to 1,750-square feet.
