In 1997 a couple wanting to build their dream home had travelled to upstate New York and saw a home built by an heiress donning a massive collection of stained glass windows. The couple went to work in Toronto to recreate the home for themselves. Needing a stained glass specialist with an excellent knowledge and ability to replicate traditional stained glass pieces, they contracted EGD to carry out all of their project requirements.
The immense project required Eve Guinan to design windows in a gothic medieval style which were to be made and installed throughout the house. Quarries windows with inlayed imaged and heraldic arms were designed for the exterior of the home.
Other more elaborate pieces were designed and built for the interior to fit into French style doors, pantries, cupboards, closet doors, and ceiling lights.
Reproductions of La Farge music windows were made for the music room. Eve reproduced the La Farge’s and designed a brand new one to balance the number of openings in the room.
More figurative floral prints were designed, built and installed into the room which held the Olympic size swimming pool. Windows and doors were built which opened onto the homes garden. This completed the nearly 3,000 square feet of glass that was used in the home to complete the client’s desires in replicating the home of their dreams.
