Project Profile: Southwinds by Mattamy Homes Sales Center

Posted on April 26, 2014 by Jared

“… homeowners ask about our feature walls all the time!”

Competition is fierce for new home developments. From neighbourhood planning, home construction details to sales center design, every step of the process is thought-out to design and build communities and homes that potential buyers want to buy.

The new home development by Mattamy Homes in Airdrie, Alberta is an excellent example of a true master planned community designed to meet the needs of its future residents. Southwinds is a mix of contemporary townhomes and detached homes. The community emphasizes wellness, the environment and lifestyle.

“The Southwinds community takes its lead from the natural landscape. Our goal is to provide a healthy community through sustainability, walkability and energy-saving options that are all part of a thriving natural environment,” says Norah Latter, vice-president of sales and marketing at Mattamy.

The sales center for a new development is often the community’s first impression. Often the only visual center for potential buyers, the sales center needs to reflect the community’s overall vision. And our friends at Sticks and Stones and Designers Edge from Calgary did just that!

Using open spaces, contemporary colours, elegant light fixtures and sustainable building products, the sales center is fresh and inviting. The  focal points of the space are two beautiful feature walls made with Stikwood Peel + Stick Reclaimed Wood wall tiles in “natural”. Made from 100% reclaimed wood from old snow fences throughout the United Sates, Stikwood is an eco-friendly wall covering that is VOC free.

One of the reasons we love wall coverings is because of their design versatility. And one of our favourite applications is the simple yet timeless feature wall.

St. Johnson Dental Office, Begrand Fast Design, Kelowna

Designed by the award winning interior design firm, Begrand Fast Design, the new office for Dr. Steven Johnson in Kelowna is modern and inviting. The contrasting combination of the frosted glass walls with our walnut Finium FriendlyWall is striking. Other design elements, such as the elegant cream chairs, understated fireplace, geometrical coffee tables and funky white chandelier, nicely complete the space.
