Moxley Home
Project

Completion 2014
Location Dundas, Ontario

Articulate designers in their own right, the clients requested their new home to be a simple, muted box.

Struggling with insecurity about our ability to achieve such pure simplicity, BLDG Workshop approached the process by adding a second box, contorting it, beating it up and smashing it. At the point the design was stretched to the most extreme version of itself, we began a process to distill it back down.

The result is perhaps a collision of our insecurities with the truly minimalist intent of design coming out of Japan and Scandinavia.
