THE ADERA RESIDENCE BY RAAW
NOMINATED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE AWARDS
The Adera Residence isn’t just a luxurious residence: it is an intricate dance between classical opulence and contemporary elegance. Its interiors embody a thoughtful amalgamation of French architectural aesthetics and Oriental charm.
RAAW Design & Associates faced a formidable challenge when crafting the Adera Residence. The homeowners, rooted in Chinese traditions, yearned for a Canadian home that resonated with their heritage while celebrating their appreciation for European art, history, and cuisine. Striking this balance required a masterful touch, and RAAW delivered. The outcome is an interior space that bridges old-world classicism and contemporary refinement, a testament to humble luxury and personalized functionality.

Craftsmanship That Stands the Test of Time
The project’s allure lies not only in its harmonious fusion of styles but also in its meticulous attention to detail. RAAW Design & Associates integrated hand-crafted elements that transcend fleeting trends, embedding a sense of longevity in the design. High-performance materials were carefully selected to ensure the resilience of the space, including the 5.5mm top-layer black walnut engineered flooring, allowing for multiple refinishing sessions over time, and sidestepping the need for extensive renovations.
The interiors are adorned with hand-applied gold-leaf interior cove ceilings, bespoke details, and handcrafted rugs, each showcasing the dedication to fine craftsmanship. One of the most captivating elements is the exquisite jewelry hardware by PullCast. The hardware, drawn from the Kesya and Karat lines, acts as both functional adornments and works of art. These intricate details provide a sense of awe-inspiring beauty, becoming heirlooms that tell stories through their exquisite design.
