Decor choices also reflect the intent of the architects to create a timeless space that fuses modern ergonomics with a more classic design. But it is not just the aesthetics that influenced this choice of a stripped-down industrial look as the homeowners also wanted an energy-efficient home with plenty of natural ventilation and smart green credentials.
The elegant forest house has a distinctly contemporary appeal and even though the exterior is draped in black the interior presents a contrasting white picture. A large living area with a smart mezzanine level is at the heart of the residence with minimal decor and warm wooden surfaces adding character and personality to the setting.
A sculptural staircase three children’s bedrooms a luxurious master suite a family room a home library and other spaces such as the laundry complete the distinctive Canadian home. Brilliant lighting smart architectural features plush decor and a beautiful landscape outside along with a refreshing pool ensure that this home offers its residents the very best in terms of both comfort and aesthetics.
Spread across it is the second-story loft that was turned into a unique living space with a style that borrows heavily from an era gone by. Vintage at every turn large windows that mimicked “1930s steel-framed factory windows” exposed steel surfaces and concrete additions helped transform this old building into a sensational loft home.
If the exterior seems delightfully disjointed in aesthetics the interior presents a contrasting picture with sleek modern design a neutral color palette and clean straight lines. A lovely atrium welcomes you indoors and a large skylight above brings in plenty of natural light providing the perfect environment for the interior bamboo garden.
The makeover started with the removal of the existing indoor partitions to completely overhaul the interior and give it a more open plan living space. By doing away with the unnecessary walls the architects achieved better cross-ventilation and a more flowing interaction between various ‘zones’ of the house.
The relaxing outdoor lounge offers additional seating options even as specially crafted white panels keep away any prying eyes. The entire residence has a cheerful modern and calming ambiance that is accentuated by clever ambient lighting. Interesting wall art books and accessories bring color to a space that is otherwise clad largely in white and gray.
