Intentional Design

There’s something big happening in central Edmonton. Blatchford, located minutes from downtown, is  on its way to becoming the home of Edmonton’s first sustainable community. Over the next 25 years of development, Blatchford will come to life, with intentionality of design at its core.

 

Blatchford will be full of diverse, timeless architecture that will blend seamlessly with everything around it. Homes, shops, parks and public spaces will be laid out in ways that encourage connection through the community and support all the life that happens outside the living room.

 

We’re starting to see this already in the first stage of development with the townhomes that are now for sale. These homes follow the community’s high architectural standards while still portraying their own unique personality.

Builder Stories

Carbon Busters

Carbon Busters was built on the belief that beautiful buildings have a direct impact on wellbeing. Their stunning Blatchford townhomes are designed to be energy efficient, zero carbon for operations and provide floor plans that make sense for real life.

These homes – inspired by lifestyle – are future-proofed and durable. They’re full of unique features, like main floor bedrooms, second storey patios with container gardens, and solar PV roofs designed to  maximize solar capture. Materials have been selected to meet high targets for airtightness, insulation value, and net zero energy performance. Carbon Busters believe that a homeowner’s health and happiness is the most important factor in designing a home.

 

Encore Master Builder

Encore’s Brooklyn townhomes were inspired by classic New York neighbourhoods. You can almost picture your kids riding their bikes down the street or playing in the backyard while you watch on with an unobstructed view from your balcony or rooftop patio.

They’ve chosen to use beautiful brickwork exteriors, which is a material that not only gives homeowners a house that will age well, but even looks better as it does. Inside, they’ve used locally and internationally sourced, high-end materials like hand-selected granite slabs and custom-designed built-in benches and barn doors. Homeowners will appreciate the opportunity to select all of their interior finishes and craft their home in a way that reflects their unique style.

 

Mutti Homes

The materials chosen for Mutti’s Tarmac Townhomes look contemporary while also being conveniently maintenance free. Premium materials such as brick and metal cladding have been used not only to enhance the townhomes overall curb appeal but also because they’re built to last.

These homes are situated on wide lots and feature large windows, which face onto walkways, allowing residents to connect with nature, neighbours and the community. On the inside, Mutti offers Blatchford residents the opportunity to customize their floor plans based on their needs and daily routines, truly maximizing quality of life.

 

Ocheller by RedBrick

Ocheller asked world-renowned architects, 5468796 Architecture Inc. to give them their take on authentic Canadian living. The result: Nest8 townhomes in Blatchford.

Nest8 represents a modern take on the quintessential cabin in the Canadian wilderness. Ocheller chose to build with sustainable materials that are beautiful, can withstand rough Canadian winters and are environmentally responsible. These well-designed homes provide the ability to adapt and change with the family inside, while providing a better future for generations to come. Ocheller believes building in Blatchford means contributing to a more vibrant city today, and a more sustainable world tomorrow.
