This was Eden Tree Design's first Toronto International Home Show design collaboration with the 2017 Future Dream Home team of builders, designers and organizers. Eden Tree Design was selected to oversee the homes placement on the site, many of the exterior facade finishes and design elements of the home itself and all of the landscape space. This also included the main stage, partner/suppliers pavilion structure and the Toyota display area and bar. The design of the landscape was created to soften the modern angular lines of the home, by utilizing repeated circular patterns in planting beds, walkways/driveway, spa, furniture, pea gravel areas, decorative screens etc. The theme behind the landscape was "Modern Zen" a theme Scott McCuaig, principal Landscape Architect and owner of Eden Tree Design, came up with after meeting the clients who will ultimately be living in the home, when it is rebuilt on their lot. Careful attention was made to ensure that the clients wish lists would be met and their daily routines of meditation and Tai Chi practice could be accommodated in a peaceful surrounding. By combining the simplicity of traditional Zen gardens with a modern twist of introducing intersecting circular elements to soften the home's clean and angular lines, the overall design achieved balance.
