At Connaught, Grosvenor’s new-home project in North Vancouver’s Edgemont Village, the developer has partnered with interior designer Scott Trepp to create homes that balance the area’s natural surroundings and strong sense of community with a sense of privacy for residents.

The minimalist interior design calls attention to the oversized windows and clear indoor-outdoor living, with the large patios acting as a natural extension of the living room.

In many homes, French doors and massive windows create a seamless transition to the outdoor living areas so homeowners can create a yearround outdoor living room.

The homes feature spacious rooms, extra-large sinks, full-sized integrated appliances and custom-designed laundry areas.

While the exterior design and neighbourhood is laid out to encourage a sense of community and access to the natural world, privacy is preserved through roller shades, landscape planters and architectural privacy screens.

Visitors to the Connaught website will find the building’s architectural design places homes back from public view. Retailers will take up space on the ground level while residential floors are set back to offer outdoor living areas away from public view.

At the same time, Trepp Design Inc.’s palette in the display space’s interior decor touches on a universal appeal.

Kitchen finishes are high quality, with imported Italian wood cabinetry featuring soft-close doors and drawers. In dimmer light and in evenings, under-cabinet lighting casts a glow on polished quartz countertops and marble slab backsplashes.

The Italian influence carries into the bathrooms with imported wood vanities and oversized marble tile on the flooring, in the shower and tub surrounds.

As in the kitchen, countertops are polished quartz, enhancing the look of the master bedroom’s double vanity sinks.

The design team adds unique pieces that reflect the beauty of North Vancouver’s natural outdoors, such as an assortment of hanging pendants in the dining space that mimic birds in flight. In one bedroom, creams, whites and light taupe create a calming effect.
