The architecture office of Halifax-based Omar Gandhi may be young - founded only four years ago - yet its design skills speak volumes. The Moore Studio in Hubbards, Nova Scotia, sits among Gandhi's favourite projects, but he has worked on a number of beautifully designed single-family houses, both main homes and holiday retreats, including the Black Gables live/work studio in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
