Fab 40: BlueSky MOD, Toronto
BlueSky MOD iss the brainchild of lawyer and entrepreneur Hy Rosenberg and Richard Stark, an urban planner with a company in custom-home construction. Their instinct, that Canadians would succumb to ‘low impact, high design’ cabin fever, led them to commission a Canadian in Norway.
The internationally renowned Todd Saunders (of the Aurland Lookout, nominated for a W* design award) designed the prototype prefab ‘to meet the needs of aesthetically and ethically discerning consumers,’ according to BlueSky. ‘Todd’s design feels very Canadian. It combines the simplicity of form found in Scandinavian or Japanese architecture with a strong sense of awareness and connection between interior and exterior,’ Stark remarks. ‘This is very Canadian.’ The result is an eco-ethical modern masterpiece.
