FeaturedWeirs Lane: Mies Van Der Rohe-Inspired Design in Canada

Weirs Lane is a 8,500 sq.ft. one of a kind residence modern home located in Millgrove, Hamilton, Canada. Designed by SMPL Design Studio and built by DB Custom Homes, this house was heavily inspired by Mies Van Der Rohe’s style.

The simple box on box design encased in glass, white ACM panels, and shou sugi ban charred wood siding creates a monochromatic palette that stands out with the snow covered landscape, but also during peak summer months with greenery surrounding the home on this 6 acre lot. With a 10,000 sq.ft. green roof, a 36 kilowatt solar array, a super insulated building envelope assembly complete with triple pane windows, and climate controlled via the geothermal heating + cooling system, this house is a masterpiece.
