Hannah Singh started her post-secondary academic career at Wilfrid Laurier University. She found areas she liked to study and there were some areas she hated studying in. Of course, then she would think about why she had such strong opinions about the study spot. It took her getting a degree to realize, Hannah wasn't that interested in her major and instead had a passion for design. Hannah believes that "Good Design leads to Piece of Mind", meaning that function and beauty can work together to ease the mind.
The concept for The Vintage Beach Cove was driven by the desire for comfort and a place to not just inhabit but to truly live. It is designed to feel as though you have stepped into an English cottage by the sea. Rich with texture, colour and finishes, as designers, we see the beauty in the way people live and how a space can function for them and our goal was to create a space where the imprint of your life adds charm, whether that be through a spilled glass of wine or a child with a crayon.

Water is a symbol of purity and rebirth, but it can change in an instance. Water can be forceful, aggressive and powerful. Water is dynamic not only with its force, but with its form. This house is designed to explore the dark side of water using scale and proportion, organic form and natural weathered materials.
Kitchen featuring dynamic tiles that catch the sun throughout the day, and a wave like wall shelf that spans the length of the house along the west wall
