The Fu­ture of Func­tion

Best Home (Canada) - - Front Page -

Vicky’s Homes builds out­side the box with in­no­va­tive fea­tures, dar­ing de­sign, and last­ing func­tion.

Known for her homes that reach out­side the box, Vicky’s Homes are about cre­at­ing sanc­tu­ar­ies of at­ten­tive de­tail and in­ven­tive de­sign. Proud winner of four pres­ti­gious awards at the 2015 Awards of Ex­cel­lence in Hous­ing, in­clud­ing Small Vol­ume Builder of the Year, her ap­proach demon­strates a ded­i­ca­tion to qual­ity and ser­vice.

Vicky Ku­jundzic fol­lows her pas­sion that is a re­flec­tion of her ded­i­ca­tion to mod­ern, revo­lu­tion­ary de­sign. “I con­sider home con­struc­tion an art form,” says Vicky whose col­lab­o­ra­tive re­la­tion­ship with the client en­sures a des­ti­na­tion of dar­ing de­sign and per­son­al­ized fea­tures.

It all be­gan in 2000 when Vicky Ku­jundzic started with one then built two homes a year and it evolved into a ca­reer that fu­eled her pas­sion. “Our fo­cus is cus­tom homes with an em­pha­sis on func­tion­al­ity and wow fac­tors. I like to be a trend­set­ter and this home re­flects that,” ad­mits Vicky. Winner of a na­tional Best New Home Award in its size cat­e­gory, it also won for best in­te­rior dec­o­rat­ing, which Vicky does her­self.

The Vit­to­rio is a two level home that cap­tures 3,445 square feet and is cur­rently a show home in Ed­mon­ton’s de­sir­able Cameron Heights. A con­tem­po­rary home

de­signed for fam­ily and those who love to en­ter­tain, it’s a de­light­ful re­minder of in­no­va­tive style en­hanced by a U-shaped is­land, re­cessed floor planters, square LED pot lights, and an en­suite with spa rock bor­ders. Host­ing tile through­out the main floor, it was cho­sen as a pet and child-friendly al­ter­na­tive, warmed by hy­dronic heat that ex­tends to the base­ment and garage. With added sleek in­no­va­tion, wall plugs are re­cessed into base­boards and pop out when in use.

“A lot of homes we build are quite cre­ative and by do­ing new things we of­ten­times have to fig­ure out how to make some­thing we en­vi­sioned come to life,” says Vicky. “To­gether we brain­storm ideas, and I count my­self lucky to have a team that is so flex­i­ble in think­ing out­side the box.” Vis­i­tors are drawn to the home due to its fresh styling and fea­tures. “Many say that they have never seen any­thing like it, given a kitchen is­land that seats 15 and an en­suite that is truly ex­otic in its ap­peal.”

A cus­tom home­builder who en­sures the de­sired re­sult and a smooth build, Vicky’s com­pre­hen­sive home im­print in­cludes decks, land­scap­ing, win­dow treat­ments, stag­ing, and in­te­rior dec­o­rat­ing, all ad­dressed with per­son­al­ized flair.

Pro­vid­ing a woman’s per­spec­tive in a male-dom­i­nated in­dus­try not only makes Vicky unique in the field of cus­tom home con­struc­tion, but it also al­lows her to ex­press her dis­tinc­tive view­point and un­der­stand­ing of what makes a home truly func­tional. Vicky con­cludes, “I think as mother of three and be­lieve this is a big rea­son why I de­sign homes as I do—with an eye to the fu­ture.”
