Warm cottage style permeates new Canadian Senior Living community

Located near the picturesque Georgian Bay in Midland, Ontario, Tiffin House is Aptura’s first international project. The client’s vision was to create a modern lakeside bed and breakfast with a residential cottage feel.

Aptura forged many new relationships with Canadian suppliers to meet the eclectic cottage feel the client desired. Additionally, we focused on creating purposeful destinations throughout the community with varied design features and amenities. The client was impressed with how the end result came together to meet their vision.
