Residential Design and Home Architecture

“The most important work you and I ever do will be within the walls of our own homes.”

– Harold B. Lee

If your home is your refuge, it is our intent to help you design a space that will become just that. From new design to additions and renovations, we work with a varied residential clientele with one common denominator – they share in the desire for a quality environment that nurtures their lifestyle and personal taste. Ted Handy and Associates has designed a mosaic of residential projects over the years; including houses, cottages, weekend residences, boathouses, apartments and condominiums. Through this mix of experience, we have learned how to collaborate with clients as partners during the creative process of marrying their design expectations with complimentary form and function.

The transformation of an outdated property has become a modern oasis of clean design and well styled comfort while connecting the interior with the beauty of the natural environment surrounding the home. The use of daylighting and sustainable materials played an important role in the renovation and addition to this 1960’s ranch bungalow. The simplified lines throughout the design have been complimented by the attention to detail that went into each space and expands across the exterior. The great room unites kitchen, dining and recreation spaces and the bedrooms have been designed in a cluster, both which evoke a strong sense of unity.

Shanty Bay Residence

This lakefront property is made up of several residential features including a guest house, boat house and garage. The slope, scale and situation have enabled the design to relate well with the natural environment and access to the water. The active lifestyle and strong sense of hospitality of the home owners is reflected throughout the interior and exterior spaces.

Barrie Bathroom Renovation

Back to Top

The objective of this project was to convert an existing bedroom and bathroom into a large elegant bathroom. Natural day lighting is brought into the space by adding new windows and a skylight. A glass steam shower is the main focal point, with a multi spray shower head, beautiful tile and led lights. By having the glass shower in the middle of the room it allows the light to carry through the space. The cabinets are custom made; the front faces of the drawers are finished with an alligator texture vinyl, which gives a unique texture and finish to the millwork and space. The door to the bathroom is also custom made with handmade glass inserts. Accent floor lighting, creates soft light for relaxing in a luxurious bubble bath.
