Nørdic’s Model Suite Responds To Today’s Modern Lifestyle
March 28, 2024

Residential options that deliver exceptional quality and design with a smaller footprint have, historically, been hard to find. But, with the new Nørdic model suite, Collecdev Markee proves, once again, that good living is achieved at any size.

The suite’s total living area comes in just under 600 square feet and includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a well-appointed kitchen/living/dining space. Outfitted by Natasha Nicholson, the Stageluxe founder known for her impeccable eye for design, the model suite is a beautiful representation of the Nørdic ethos: human-centred architecture that maintains a strong relationship to the outdoors.

A breath of fresh air

Life at Nørdic will, quite literally, provide a breath of fresh air to residents thanks to generous balconies that are protected from the elements, and ready to enjoy winter, spring, summer, or fall. In the model suite, a sliding door provides access from the living room, framing the view towards the treetops and creating a natural extension of the indoors. “I wanted the balcony to feel calm and inviting,” says Nicholson, “a place where you feel inspired to bring your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening, and sit and contemplate in total comfort.”

Remarkable privacy, natural flow

Inside, the layout of the model suite optimizes both privacy and flow, creating a space that feels perfectly intuitive. It begins with an entry placed directly across from the balcony, creating uninterrupted sightlines to the outdoors and a striking first impression.

The front hall closet is close at hand, offering a convenient spot to leave your coat and shoes before stepping into the main living/dining area, a bright space where floor-to-ceiling windows capture natural light. A gourmet kitchen is tucked to the side, making it easily accessible, but also providing a distinction between the work space and the place to relax, entertain, and play. The compact design puts everything within reach and includes thoughtful details like stainless steel appliances and custom-designed cabinetry with soft-close hardware on doors and drawers.

Split bedrooms are another thoughtful touch and ensure a sense of privacy, while large windows keep the rooms feeling bright and airy. “It’s unusual to see split bedrooms in condominium design,” notes Nicholson, “it’s a nice detail that creates the feeling of distinct zones within the home and allowed us to showcase two unique designs that have their own personality, but still work in harmony with the rest of the suite.”

Harmony is a principal theme at Nørdic, and appears throughout the finishes that adorn the multi-functional spaces, finishes like contemporary hardware, organic textures, and wide-plank wood grain laminate floor. The neutral colour palette, clean lines, and natural materials offer a refreshing take on the Scandinavian design aesthetic – understated elegance with optimized flow.

Sustainable living

As with all Collecdev Markee communities, Nørdic takes a long-term approach to sustainable development, using innovative new technologies like geothermal heating and cooling, to promote a better quality of life.

Not only does geothermal energy help preserve the environment - saving over 5 million litres of water every year while using 40% less energy than a traditional HVAC system, and producing 70% less greenhouse gas - it also provides predictable monthly costs and a tangible increase in property value. Not to mention, residents have full control of in-suite heating and cooling, putting comfort at their fingertips.

From the beginning, Nørdic has always been about promoting a collective wellbeing, and with its bright, spacious layout, the model suite brings that to life, a testament to the art of living well. Here, amidst the hustle and bustle of the city, residents will find sanctuary in the harmony of form and function, beauty and utility. Nicholson sums it up best, “From the quality of design to the future-forward infrastructure, Nørdic is a stunning example of smart urban development, a place where modern meets mindful living, and where every moment is an invitation to thrive.”
