Our Story

Over the past 24 years, founders Gary & Joanne Scullion have had the opportunity to live and work in a number of cities both in Canada and the United States.  During that time, they have come to appreciate a whole host of architectural designs. It was between 2004 and 2007, when the couple lived in a small ocean town (Cohasset, MA) just 25 miles southwest of Boston, that they fell in love with the architectural beauty of the region and the coastal designs common to the Northeastern US. 

Determined to bring those same design elements back to Toronto, they embarked upon their 4th building project in 2010 – 37 Elm Street, Markham.  Taking style cues from some of their favorite destinations like Martha’s Vineyard, Chatham (Cape Cod) and Cohasset, MA and combining that with creative outdoor living spaces, the couple set out to design a home that captured the very essence of coastal living.  And while the ocean may have been far from sight, the result was a beautiful, one of a kind home that has consistently garnered the praise and appreciation of residents within the community.

Having completed their personal home (7 Grenfell Crescent in Markham) in December 2016,  the couple recently took a trip back to Martha’s Vineyard to search out some fresh , new architectural design ideas which will inspire future projects in and outside of the GTA.

About Cohasset, Massachusetts

Cohasset was first seen by Europeans in 1614, when Captain John Smith explored the coast of New England. The area was first settled in 1670 and became a town separate from Hingham in 1770. Previously, what is today the town of Cohasset was known as Hingham's Second Parish. The town's name came from the Algonquian word "Conahasset", meaning "long rocky place". Much of the land was originally granted to the "Conahasset Partners".  At a special town meeting of January 1670, the shares in the new town were apportioned and divided among the new proprietors, many of whom were large Hingham landowners. The largest number of shares—35—went to Hingham Town Clerk Daniel Cushing, with the second largest (25) to Reverend Peter Hobart, Hingham's minister. Others receiving large grants were: Capt. Joshua Hobart, Peter Hobart's brother (18 shares); Lieut. John Smith (15 shares); Ensign John Thaxter (16½ shares); and deacon John Leavitt (with 14½ shares).  The layout of the town was distinctive. Many lots were laid out in long narrow strips, facilitating more lots having road frontage, and avoiding back lots. Cohasset was originally part of Suffolk County, and when the southern part of the county was set off as Norfolk County in 1793, it included the towns of Cohasset, Hingham and Hull. In 1803 Hull and Hingham opted out of Norfolk County and became part of Plymouth County, leaving Cohasset as an exclave of Norfolk County.
