The Iconic team has been long time admirers of ArtHouse Residential and their consistent focus on improving the residential development landscape within Central Edmonton. Whether its a full custom home, a garage suite or a sauna, it seems everything they build is quality and utterly iconic.
ArtHouse Residential is an Edmonton-based custom infill home builder that prioritizes collaboration and efficiency. They strive to challenge the status quo, working with clients to craft personalized sustainable homes without sacrificing lifestyle, space or aesthetics - all while helping them save money on their monthly mortgage. With a focus building dense versatile properties tailored around individual lifestyles granting access to urban experiences: building a home with Arthouse means achieving sustainability, value and ultimate style.
As Edmontonians themselves, the owners of ArtHouse care about the communities they work in. With each new home developed by ArtHouse, not only the property its sits upon improves; the whole street, the entire community and the City of Edmonton benefits as a whole. More recently we were conversing about the concept of aging in place and how that affects the standard perspectives of Infill homes in Edmonton. Curious on their take, the owners of ArtHouse put it best when they said:
“An aging-in-place home goes beyond maximizing your financial investment in a property. It’s also about keeping strong social connections. People often build relationships with neighbours and become invested in their community. A home and the surrounding community can contribute to your sense of identity. Adaptable homes benefit the community by enabling people of all ages and abilities to remain a part of it. Age-in-place homes help people maintain their sense of identity and connection to place.”
At Iconic we see time and time again that owners are faced with the pressure to move as their current home does not meet the standards of their changing abilities which is why we admire companies like ArtHouse who are having these conversations with their clients before they become an urgent necessity.
Just like any long term investment, planning for the future is key. Creating an aging-in-place home transforms a regular dwelling into an accessible, functional space for all ages. By incorporating hidden features in the layout and design of your house, you make it easier to accommodate any unexpected injuries or surgeries that could occur down the line. Not only does this guarantee added security - but if you choose to sell later on, accessibility is sure to entice potential buyers and increase your overall value.
Afterall, who wouldn't find comfort knowing they can live comfortably regardless of age?
