PROJECT OF THE YEAR
Why was our Honeyfield community in Acton voted as a finalist for the prestigious Project of the Year Award for the GTA? Because we took a fresh, new approach to small town living.
Our Acton community started with a clear vision for excellence in community and home design. Planning neighbourhoods and designing homes were viewed as complementary – not independent – exercises, with designs inspired by local architecture and heritage features.
Homes and neighbourhood amenities were arranged to encourage pedestrian traffic and interaction with fellow residents. Garages were set back from the street and porches were moved forward. Attention was paid to designing architecturally cohesive exteriors that allowed homeowners to express their individuality without compromising a harmonious streetscape inspired by timeless heritage. We are glad that our peers recognized our efforts. However, our greatest reward is in knowing that we have altered the landscape in Acton in a positive way that residents will enjoy for generations to come.
