Outside of Edgemont Walk, a planned collection of 24 row townhomes in North Vancouver, developer Boffo Properties will place Shattered Sphere, a bright, illuminating public art installation by West Vancouver artist Brent Comber. The devotion to artistic vision and style doesn’t end there, though; thanks to the creativity of two design firms, it’s also reflected in the style of the display home interiors.

The townhomes are spacious, ranging up to 2,595 square feet with garages, three bedrooms plus flex rooms or dens, engineered hardwood flooring, powder rooms on the main floors and full laundry centres with added storage. Though the space and features are a draw, it’s the open-concept living and dining rooms that stand out for their theatricality thanks to suite design and finishes from Lisa Hansen and Brenda Chiu of Area 3 Design with furnishings and decor by BYU Design’s Ada Bonini and Nicole Duval.

Together, the dark wood and black leather of the living room chairs and dark dining room seating create a look associated with mid-century modern style. BYU Design sourced the chairs in the dining and living rooms at Crate and Barrel. “We chose them to create a mid-century vibe with a modernized twist,” says Ada Bonini, principal of BYU Design.

“The wood and leather combination creates a timeless feel.”

The style of the furnishings may have further ignited a creative spark for the BYU designers, who chose a dark green for the dining room wall. They then layered the dramatic look with even more impact by installing a trio of full-length framed mirrors.

It’s unconventional and glamorous. At the same time, the dark feature wall sets a quiet mood, Bonini admits. “This tone helps create a warmth and coziness to the room, while expanding it at the same time. It is an anchor or grounding point for artwork and mirrors and by painting the full length, we helped make the living and dining room feel cohesive, while giving it a West Coast feel.”

Once Bonini and Duval arranged the large string of theatrical lighting across the ceiling — a move that they hadn’t planned on doing earlier in the planning stages — the room took on a whole new personality.

“The client specifically requested using this fixture,” says Bonini, who points out this lighting comes courtesy of the Flos “Aim” fixture.

“It’s a beautiful statement piece that creates a great focal point for the space. The fixture helps spread light out just where you want it and feels sculptural. It’s a larger scale than we would typically use, but in the end we were happy with the effect it created.”
