Architectural Modern Masterpiece
Anyone who has been fortunate enough to have seen Mark Cummings’s home – Oakville’s
Delano House – would agree that the man knows style. And if they were lucky enough to see the Porsche Taycan in his driveway with Mark spinning its keys in his hand, they would know that style is not bought, it’s curated.
“If Porsche were designing a house,” Real Estate professional Christopher Invidiata told Cummings, “it would look like yours, and if you were to design a car, it would be the Taycan.”
So what aesthetic philosophies do the abode and automobile marvels share? “A strict adherence to a truly modern experience,” says Cummings. “Uncompromising quest for quality and excellence, and exceptional use of innovation, space, and symmetry.”
The contemporary automobile has to evenly balance style and functionality, as the Taycan does with precision. The Delano House, named after one of Miami’s sexiest hotels, does the same in that, “Every room in the home was built to specific criteria and size with the perfect balance between ergonomic needs and functionality. Every hallway in the house is a minimum of five feet wide. The goal was to capture the right balance of every room being open-concept, yet functional while adhering to a purely modern style with crisp and clean lines truly embracing the essence of being minimalistic.”
Cummings’ passion for style is apparent as he describes his awe-inspiring home, whose design inspiration was, “a purely modern Miami style home in the plush, warm, and character-filled presence of Southeast Oakville. In essence, bringing the Delano to Southeast Oakville.’”
Technology engages with and informs that style throughout the home. “There are heated floors throughout, sound and lighting automation, video surveillance, and video doorbells all controlled by a robust automotive engine in the hub of the home. All aspects reflect leading-edge technology that compliments the design of the house.”
