Executive Home on Lake Simcoe
Oro-Medonte, Ontario

1625 m2 (17 500 sq ft) residence and 42 m2 (450 sq ft) boathouse on the shore of Lake Simcoe. RMA was retained early during the site selection process and designed and managed the entire construction effort. The lot was part of a former 'brownfield' rail yard with extremely complex site and ground water problems, which required extensive site remediation and slope stabilization. To minimize energy consumption, high-performance building envelope and HVAC strategies/systems, including geothermal radiant energy, passive solar energy and super insulated building envelope were selected. State of the art automation controls and electrical and mechanical systems were designed. Interior spaces include indoor lap pool, elevator, conservatory, wine cellar, home theater and library. Interior design and finish selections ranged from high-end millwork to utilitarian exercise and storage solutions.
