See-Thru Studio

Argento was designed with the clients’ craft in mind. As veteran architectural metal and glass fabricators, the clients wanted a custom residence that would showcase their capacity within their field of expertise, and allow them to participate in the design and building process as artisans.

The site is located in a rural residential neighbourhood, along a major arterial road near the village center. The prominent location and the rich cultural heritage of the area created the perfect ground to develop a highly-crafted legacy home.

The project assumes the name Argento—an Italian word which translates to English as silver—which is both a nod to the clients’ Italian heritage, and to the material. Silver is a metal which takes on many finishes: polished, brushed, hand-worked, carved, etched and even tarnished. In particular, the colour qualities, and workability of silver as a material served as inspiration for various design elements in the project.

This showroom and studio space is part of the head office designed for a custom home builder. The showroom and studio is intended to act as a multi-function space, flexible enough to host both client events and informal meetings, as well as showcase digital imagery of their proposed and completed works. The program includes a lounge, a kitchenette, a resource library, and a design studio/boardroom. FrankFranco Architects was commissioned to design the layout of the space, select the finish materials, detail the millwork and custom Caesarstone boardroom table, and to make furniture selections.
