This new condo was highly customized from the builders’ original plan. At only 3780 square feet, the home was not excessive in the space allocation, and yet the classic modern design has generous room sizes and in some cases very large scale for the living spaces. Designed for a family of five that frequently enjoy entertaining family and friends, the main floor of the home (which is the second floor of the building as it is a stacked condo, with the ground floor a different unit) accommodates the primary living areas.
The anchor of the home is the stunning kitchen with an über-sized island. The kitchen shares the open space with the living room and dining room. Both of these rooms have beautiful views over the Rideau Canal. The mudroom, powder room, mechanical room along with the family room are all part of the main floor.
The second floor accommodates a master suite with a large bath and wardrobe, a shared bath, laundry room, an office and a second mechanical room. On the rooftop is an urban garden designed for entertaining and enjoying spectacular views as far as Gatineau Hills.
A minimalist approach to all the fixture and finish selections, and very careful attention to detail with flush doorframes and baseboards, “floating ceilings,” along with a stunning staircase in the center of the house, results in a home where quality living is comfortable.

Custom Canal Condo Review
Friedemann and his team helped us design two homes from the inside out. We involved him from the planning stages and are so happy that we did. In both cases, the final result was better than we had imagined and we know that we would not have been as satisfied had we not worked with Friedemann. His attention to detail is amazing. On our projects, he did not settle with a design until he was sure and so were we that it was the best possible design. He also insured that every detail was built out according to plan. We are grateful for all the time and effort he put in to helping us. We couldn't have done it without him!
