ABOUT THE PROJECT:
TACT Design is a full service Interior Design firm that engages in a broad range of projects including custom homes; low, mid & high-rise residential amenity and suite design; along with commercial interiors including retail, office and restaurant design. TACT Design is headed by Principal Michael Krus who infuses the firm’s creative work with a strong architectural sensibility. TACT Design works with the same mandate as its sister companies: They push the design of a space to it’s full potential, while at the same time respecting the Client’s budget. They proved in lots of their projects that innovative design can be created within modest budgets, and that financial constraints can be used as an impetus to push their creativity further.
“Heathdale is a 3,200 sqft custom single-family residence located on the ravine of Cedarvale Park in Mid-town Toronto. This house projects a resolute demeanor towards the street with an undaunted face toward the ravine.
The carefully crafted inner core is grounded by the sculpted wooden stair, which culminates at the 3rd floor study and wrap-around terrace.
Expansive windows allow the owners to dwell amongst the ravine’s tree canopy while the lower family area spills into the shaded rear yard.
The front dining area finds its comfort under the brow of the striking yet reserved Corten face. The dichotomy of the design responds to the contrasting public and private sides of the site; rooting it in its context while expressing the persona of the owners.”
