Suite Features

From kitchens that use the latest low-energy appliances to living areas that maximize every inch of floor space, Escher suites have been carefully planned to balance modern convenience with the comforts of home. Here are just a few of the features you'll find in every Escher suite...

Zoned temperature control with programmable digital thermostats and electric baseboard heating.
Wide-plank laminate or hardwood flooring (as per plan) in living areas and kitchens.
Designer-chosen carpet or laminate flooring (as per plan) in bedrooms.
A USB charging station built-in to the electrical outlet in your kitchen, den or built-in desk.
An in-suite ‘smartbox’ for network hookups and to conceal modems and routers.
A personal suite inspection with a member of the Chard Team prior to move-in.
Dimmable recessed pot lights in kitchens and dining areas that are ready for your personal chandelier or pendant.
Recessed electrical boxes in bedroom ceilings for your light fixtures or fans.
Brushed nickel lever-style interior door handles with privacy sets on all bathrooms.
Internet, phone and TV pre-wiring with one year of free TV and internet from Shaw and Chard.
Sliding pocket doors with locking, concealed pulls in select locations.
Built-in closet organizers in bedrooms and select laundry and storage rooms.

“Our goal with Escher's interiors was to strike that perfect balance between innovation and longevity, form and function. We wanted to bring something bold and modern to Victoria without sacrificing Chard's reputation for practical, highly livable spaces."

Design Palettes

Escher suites come in one of three designer palettes: Fresca, Chroma, and Canvas. Ranging from light and airy to rich and modern, each palette has been carefully crafted to give you a stylish backdrop for your personal decor.

Bright, airy, and confidently understated, Fresca’s subtle tones and textures are all about bringing warmth into the room while maximizing natural light. Light grey quartz countertops and cabinet uppers are complemented by silver elm lowers, island and pantries, while scottish oak toned flooring in the main living areas helps to create a fresh and contemporary look and feel.

With an eye-catching combination of brushed oak flooring, natural rosewood veneer lowers, island and vanity, and hexagon stone backsplashes, Chroma represents the boldest of Escher’s three palettes. Artfully contrasting warm, at-home tones with modern shapes and textures, the effect is as welcoming as it is captivating.

Chroma Kitchen

Canvas is the most dynamic and innovative of the Escher palettes—a truly modern aesthetic designed to echo the building itself. With a combination of dark granite tones and rich walnut flooring, Canvas seamlessly integrates comfort and warmth with the sophistication and strength of leading-edge modern design.
