Royal Homes, Canada's largest custom builder of pre-engineered homes, is introducing a line of architect-designed modern home designs. The first is the Q Series, designed by Kohn Shnier Architects.



Pieter Venema, president of Royal Homes, announced the availability of the Q Series, designed by Kohn Shnier Architects, the cutting-edge modernists responsible for buildings like the award-winning Umbra World headquarters and the student center at Erindale Campus of the University of Toronto.

According to Mr. Venema, �Royal Homes has been building homes that meet the needs and desires of the Ontario home buyer for 33 years. "We believe that there is demand for a modernist home, we are excited by the work that Kohn Shnier has done, and look forward to building them,�" said Venema.

Royal Homes will be building the Q Series at its indoor production facility in Wingham, Ontario for delivery and installation in Ontario and Michigan. The Royal Homes production system, with its sophisticated tools and experienced craftsmen, delivers higher quality in less time than conventional construction at a competitive price.

With the Q series, Royal Homes is offering architect-designed modern home plans developed and priced so that the customer knows what they are getting, what it will cost and when they will get it—all unusual attributes in modern residential design and construction.

Interest and exposure to modernist design has been increasing, and has been expressed locally in condominiums, furniture and restaurants, published in magazines like Dwell, and online at sites like LiveModern and

Lloyd Alter, an architect/developer working with Royal Homes (and LiveModern member, lloydalter), has a passion for modern design and admiration for Kohn Shnier.

"Modern design has traditionally been the preserve of the wealthy who can afford the time and the money to start from scratch. We want to make it easy for anyone to own a home designed with flair and skill by a great architect," said Alter.

The Royal Q Series is designed to fit into a range of site sizes and ground conditions, with or without basements. The units are designed for maximum energy efficiency and minimum waste, and are delivered and installed �turnkey—complete and carefree.
