TESTIMONIAL

We had discovered the Old Millside neighbourhood while out for a stroll and saw that Nutan had this listing. We chose to work with her expertise upon our first and only viewing in our home search, and it was love at first sight for both the home, and with Nutan’s ability to bring calm and order to the process. We ended up with a successful offer the very same evening which was hugely due to Nutan ensuring all parties were happy. Not long after closing, Nutan’s expertise was depended upon by Gina’s daughter which successfully resulted in her first home purchase! - Gina & Steve

SUSTAINABLE LAUNDRY: HELP THE PLANET WHILE SAVING YOUR CLOTHES 6

(NC) When it comes to making ecofriendly lifestyle choices for your home, the laundry room is often overlooked. Fortunately, reducing the impact of washing and drying clothes not only contributes to a greener home, it can also save money and make clothes last longer.

guesswork out of laundry. The new LG AI Front Load laundry pair is built with all that and more! It has been built with AI technology that takes the guesswork out of laundry with userfriendly features that make it easier to do this often-tedious chore.

While appliances play a key role in sustainability, other small changes to your laundry routine can go a long way in helping your environmental footprint and prolonging the life of your favourite clothing. Try to wash in cold water, dry clothes on a lower heat setting and use environmentally friendly laundry detergent or make your own. And be sure to follow the directions on your clothing labels – a recent survey found that 66 per cent of Canadians do so to preserve their clothes.

The laundry pair uses AI to detect, sense and optimize wash settings for top fabric protection. This innovative feature senses the load’s weight to automatically select the proper wash cycle, while adding the exact amount of liquid detergent and fabric softener that is needed at optimal times during the wash cycle for improved results and clothes that last longer.

If you're looking to upgrade your washer and dryer with clothes preservation and energy water savings in mind, look for a laundry pair that has intuitive and convenient features that take the

When upgrading your laundry machine, always look for the Energy Star seal, which indicates the product is certified to help save energy, and a machine built with innovative technology, which will help reduce your environmental footprint, right from home. newscanada.com

4K ULTRA SHORT THROW LASER PROJECTOR:

the Premiere

Samsung Electronics announced its all new 4K Ultra Short Throw laser projector, The Premiere, at its virtual press conference event “Life Unstoppable” on September 2nd. The new 4K laser projector provides a big picture cinematic experience in the comfort of one’s home. The Premiere is the new anchor product in the awardwining Lifestyle product portfolio that now transcends the display experience – without the display.

SAMSUNG WILL BEGIN TO ROLLOUT THE PREMIERE GLOBALLY STARTING FROM THE US, EUROPE, KOREA, AND OTHER REGIONS LATER THIS YEAR. 8

The Premiere will be available up to 130” and 120” models – LSP9T and LSP7T respectively – that support a laser powered 4K picture resolution. The Premiere LSP9T is the world’s first HDR10+ certified projector with triple laser technology and delivers revolutionary contrast details as the user watches from bright to dark scenes with a peak brightness of up to 2,800 ANSI lumens. The Premiere also supports Filmmaker Mode for the first of its kind as a projector allowing users to enjoy watching movies as director intended. The smart projector comes equipped with Samsung’s Smart TV platform and experience full of streaming video apps from major content partners and mobile connectivity features such as Tap View and mirroring.

The Premiere comes in an all-in-one compact, space-saving design that blends into a variety of living room settings and arrangements. As it is an ultra-short-throw projector, The Premiere can be placed just in front of the wall. It is designed for an easy-to-install set up and sports fabric finishes around its edges to harmonize different environments. The Premiere has powerful built-in woofers and Acoustic Beam surround sound, providing one of the best cinema experiences of projectors on the market today and reduces the need for additional bigger sound equipment in tighter spaces.

“OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS, WE HAVE SEEN HOW CONSUMERS ARE SPENDING MORE TIME AT HOME AND HOW THE ROLE OF EVERYDAY LIFE CONTINUES TO CHANGE. TV HAS BECOME THE CENTRE OF ENTERTAINMENT, A FITNESS PARTNER, A CO-WORKER AND A SOURCE FOR NEWS,” SAID JONGSUK CHU, EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF VISUAL DISPLAY BUSINESS AT SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS. “THE PREMIERE RE-IMAGINES THE HOME CINEMA EXPERIENCE WITH AN ALL-NEW, COMPACT DESIGN, 4K PICTURE QUALITY AND BIG SOUND FOR TIGHT SPACES THAT CAN BE USED FOR ANY AT-HOME ACTIVITY AND LIVING ROOM ARRANGEMENTS.”

Samsung first launched its Lifestyle product portfolio with The Serif in 2016 and has since expanded it to the award-winning TV line-up of The Frame, The Sero and The Terrace. By enhancing elements that speak to the consumer passion points for art, interior designs and the mobile experience, Samsung’s Lifestyle product line-up functions have evolved to become a central hub for a wide array of lifestyles. ◆

HOME DÉCOR

Garden CIRCLE HOUSE Photography By Scott Norsworthy | dubbledam.ca

MERGING SUSTAINABILITY WITH BIOPHILIC DESIGN PRINCIPLES, A NEW HOME IN MIDTOWN TORONTO IS INSPIRED BY NATURE, CONNECTED TO THE OUTDOORS AND AWASH IN DAYLIGHT.

A four-bedroom home in midtown Toronto designed by Dubbeldam Architecture + Design, Garden Circle House is a response to the client’s desire for a sustainable home inspired by nature, connected to the outdoors and awash in daylight. The Dubbeldam team drew upon biophilic design strategies incorporating many key principles for building visual and non-visual connections with the outdoors. Biophilic design dates back to the mid-1980s, but in recent years it has become a larger part of sustainable practices due to the growing wellness movement and a greater desire to live and work in healthier interiors. The term describes a conscious effort to link the built environment to the natural world, through various sensory experiences including sight, sound, touch, and smell.

16


The house is imbued with wellness features, including a palette of natural materials, lush landscaping, and water features that offer both visual and auditory effects to enhance a sense of calmness. It also uses spatial strategies to maximize natural light and to visually connect to the outdoors through ample fenestration and elevated vantage points. Upon entry into the house, a direct view to the backyard lap pool and landscaping is visible through a tall, narrow window on-axis. Looking back toward the front entry, a double-height space dramatically showcases the home’s dynamic spatial qualities, enhanced by the light that pours in from the tall windows and the abstracted shadows cast by the triangular light fixtures overhead. Views are primarily oriented to the rear yard, with access through wall-towall sliding doors in the kitchen. A hot tub built into the hard-wearing Cumaru outdoor decking and firepit on the small patio transforms the backyard into a relaxing oasis for three out of four seasons. A focal point of the interior is the central staircase crafted of solid mahogany and featuring open risers and a curved balustrade that emulates natural organic forms, inviting the hand to run along its sculptural contours. Light filters through an operable skylight, providing natural illumination and ventilation in the centre of the home, while simultaneously offering a view of the sky. ▚

17


HOME DÉCOR

Inspired by the client’s love for Prairie Style architecture, the exterior of the house incorporates horizontal planes and overhangs, and an earthy, natural material palette of brick, wood, and stone. Buff and grey-toned brick convey a sense of solidity while Western red cedar boards and mahogany-framed windows complement the warmth of wood.

Green roofs are integrated into each of the overlapping roof planes on the front and back of the house, while their soffits are detailed with Brazilian massaranduba. Integral to the front of the house is the pear tree that was retained on-site; located in front of the large dining-room window, its foliage casts an animated play of shadow and light year-round, while the scent of blossoms in spring and ripe fruit in autumn wafts through the open window. Complementing the home’s biophilic design strategy is the prioritization of sustainability approaches and systems such as radiant infloor heating, efficient high-velocity cooling, thermally superior wall assemblies, operable windows and skylights for natural ventilation and daylighting, LED light fixtures, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and durable, hard-wearing and low-VOC materials. ◆
