“We want to rethink the place we call home, the architecture of our world, the way we connect, the way we work, the way we shop, the way we travel, the way we exercise, the way we eat and what we eat, the way we meet friends, the way we love, the way we listen and what we listen to, the way we learn and are inspired, the way we create, experiment and explore, the way we see and try new things, the way we enjoy beauty, how we experience nature, the culture we are a part of, the footprint we leave – the way we live life.“
Westbank’s latest residential offering at Oakridge is a 17-storey tower featuring interiors designed by Clémande Burgevin Blachman. The first Westbank homes to come fully furnished, with furniture and accessories curated by the designer.
At nearly 10 acres, the park will form the connective tissue of Oakridge, uniting all programs and user groups across the site, while weaving nature into the lives of residents and visitors. The Oakridge park will be accessible, with convenient paths connecting access points and major destinations, such as the Community Centre. The park is comprised of six interconnected spaces, each with their own identity: the Community Centre Park, the Woodlands, Meadow Gardens, Pocket Park, Upper Green and the Commons.
The future of mobility is being rewritten as we speak. We are developing Oakridge to recognize that everyone’s mobility needs are unique and designing the project with maximum flexibility. If you’re going to the airport, you have direct access to the Canada Line. There will be car sharing programs for those who need to drive but don’t want the inconvenience of ownership. The nature and potential of mobility is transforming at a rapid pace, but whatever options individual users choose or prefer – Oakridge is ready.
Retail spaces are emerging as cultural town squares, places we go to learn, be inspired, try new things and co-create. Tailored to meet individual needs, modern retail concepts support the diversity of the community and offer visitors a sense of homecoming that online retailers never could. The Oakridge retail experience is comprised of over 300 concepts, brought together in a unique environment designed by Wonderwall, Tokyo’s leading retail designers, who have created some of the most inspiring stores around the world.
A curation of home essentials selected by Clémande Burgevin Blachman
“I’ve always had a fantasy of living in a hotel, a place fully set up, efficient, and beautiful. But a hotel is not a home. I would miss the pleasure of cooking, of picking a book from my library, of changing flowers. I’ve moved a lot so it’s been my dream to find everything in one place: clever, aesthetically pleasant products to help me build a home. I made this dream come true with The Studio Sets. I only curated the essentials, each unit is like a carefully curated selection with everything you could need. Because to feel at home you need practical, magical, and beautiful things.”
- My favourite appliances by Stelton
- Stelton products are the epitome of Danish design. These are essential objects that I live with. I love them so much, I had to select them for your home.
- Teapots and glasses from Kinto
- Kinto’s drinkware exhibits everything I look for when I pick products for my own home: simplicity, craftsmanship, and premium materials.
- Wooden placemats from Kinto
- Japanese design, like these placemats from Kinto, fits so well with Scandinavian aesthetics — they both influenced each other so much!
- Beautiful kitchen vases from Iittala
- This vase is a design icon. Alvar Aalto designed it 1936 and it still looks like it could’ve just been conceived yesterday. Plus I like their secret meaning: they’re designed to look like the beautiful lakes of Finland.
- Everyday heirloom china by Royal Copenhagen
- Royal Copenhagen is a classic. Their china is elegant, understated, and filled with heritage. It’s so versatile, you can either use it every day, or to entertain guests. Their coffee mug is also the most clever object there is — and my own personal favorite.
- Only the best: Le Creuset
- Maybe it’s because I’m French, but I don’t think any kitchen is complete without a Le Creuset cocotte. It’s practically a national landmark!
- Bowls in perfect proportions by Pieter Stockmans
- Designed in the early 1980s, these bowls are masterpieces. Even 40 years later, they’re still the most beautiful and versatile out there. The proportions are perfect.
BED & BATH
- A space-saving murphy bed from Clei
- I thought murphy beds didn’t exist anymore but I rediscovered them! They’re perfect because they’re efficient and the beds from Italian manufacturer Clei are the absolute best.
- Skincare refresh from Susanne Kaufmann
- Susanne Kaufmann’s products are pure, organic, smell divine, and best of all: they deliver amazing results.
- A 21st-century toothbrush by Quip
- I love Quip. They took something so mundane but so necessary — a toothbrush — and made it truly beautiful.
- Iconic flip-flop fashion by Havaianas
- You need sandals to go to the pool in your pool robe, and what’s better than classic Havaianas?
