Williamson Chong

Posted on Wed, 20 Mar 2013 by KiM

Williamson Chong is the Toronto architecture and design office of Shane Williamson, Betsy Williamson, and Donald Chong. This trio brings on creativity, urbanism and sustainability. Below are a few of their projects, my favourite being the Galley House, built on a long, narrow ‘leftover lot of 12’ wide – which is the exact width of my house. But mine looks nothing like this one. 🙁 It’s amazing what these folks did with such an awkward space.

While googling country kitchens (I have a hankering for simple, clean Shaker style lines in my hopefully soon to be renovated kitchen) I stumbled upon British bespoke kitchen designers deVOL. Beautiful freestanding kitchen furniture… islands, cabinets, butcher’s blocks, shelves and more. I love the display kitchens they have installed in Cotes Mill, the historic 16th century listed water mill that is their showroom. That’s if you can call such an amazing building a “showroom”.
