the garden wall house is finally finished construction and put up for sale already. somehow, i feel that to me, the execution of peter cardew’s design isn’t up to snuff. you be the judge.
designed by : peter cardew and winner of 2006 canadian architect award of excellence for this design.
built in : 2013 (listed for 3.68mil which is absolute madness!, 2015 – relisted for 3.38mil)
those who know a bit about peter cardew’s quality of work will be surprised to see this. painted bricks? cheesy address signage, ridiculous mailbox and ornate gate. obviously peter cardew’s office had nothing to do with the outcome.
somewhere between the excellent design by peter cardew and execution, something went horribly wrong.
check out an article in canadian architect magazine about the house design here.
oh, what could have been. everybody should know by know it’s all about the details!
