Trinidad house is timeless beauty by Mocad Limited.

Nestled in the foothills of the Northern Range on Trinidad’s west side is a five-bedroom split-level home that represents a family’s growth. It’s a warm, contemporary design where the couple cook and entertain their friends and large families—it’s their “forever” home, where their children will return for visits once they’ve flown the coop. The design of the home is by Mocad Ltd, the same architecture firm that designed the family’s first “stepping stone” residence several years prior. The foothills home’s expansive loft space, guest suite, and indoor and outdoor kitchen spaces lend a versatility that’s tailored to the lifestyle of its owners.

The finishes are clean and classic, with a timeless look that extends throughout the cohesive design. Rich, deep brown-stained appamatt kitchen cabinets are brightened by the coordinating quartz countertops. Large-format gloss porcelain tiles in the home’s shared spaces speak to a comfortable elegance, while hardwood floors in the bedrooms and loft area create homey enclaves for the residents and their guests.

The home’s classic design appeals to a wide range of preferences, while special architectural touches throughout add distinctiveness. A mosaic tile wall frames a pond in the home’s outdoor space, adding a Zen-like, high, tiered tray ceilings create depth with a hint of grandeur; and the master suite’s “wet room,” with dual-wall rainhead showers and large two-person tub, is a stand-out showpiece.

This foothills home, with its seamless interplay of graceful beauty and family-style contentment, is a small sampling of how far-reaching Mocad Ltd’s skills truly are. Over more than two decades, Mocad Ltd has serviced a wide range of clients, from multi-family housing projects to commercial developments like shopping plazas, malls, service centres, and office buildings. The firm has even designed private homes for the real estate developers who head up these major projects.

“We really don’t ascribe to a particular architectural style, as we try to be as versatile as possible and respond to every client with regard to their particular preference and the language that they prefer,” says Mocad Ltd Principal Designer Maureen Munro-Legge.

Mocad Ltd’s expertise extends beyond architectural design to interior design and procurement services. The team can also advise clients on real estate portfolio development, from individuals looking for the right investment to firms seeking to improve on their real estate holdings.
