The Modern ArtHouse7

Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada


Smart Home Professionals: Premier Smart Homes
Builder & Designer: Rose Barroso of Barroso Homes



Even though it is located in Ontario, Canada, this ArtHouse7 home was inspired by California living. With grand spaces, open concepts, and massive numbers of glass walls, it also boasts a Control4 technology package to be envied. Its contemporary structure is quite stunning, however, Rose made sure to balance out the dazzling appearance with technology and structures within the home that kept it feeling comfortable and cozy.

Modern wine bar with Control4 audio distribution, iPad access to home control, connected temperature control for wine, voice control throughout the home, and automated lighting control and design.

Beautiful contemporary kitchen with connected audio distribution, iPad access to home control, and automated lighting control and design—including specialty lighting scenes for kitchen use.

Impressive great room complete with automated motorized shades, iPad access to home control, connected security system with access throughout the home, automated and zoned audio distribution with in-ceiling speakers, connected lighting design, and a custom home network.

The way I approach every project is by asking myself: ‘How can I improve on something that is already pretty spectacular? Where do I find that next new material or piece of technology that will keep us fresh and innovative?’
