Simplicity and Openness Make This House The Perfect Place For Nature Lovers

by in Architecture

A modest home renovated by Christopher Simmonds Architect always gives you a sense of simplicity and openness. This project is located near the river and takes advantage of the continuous wall of glass that spans the living, the dining and the kitchen space allowing a full panorama of the passing seasons.

In the city of Ottawa, Canada, away from the water, this house's view is framed by a simple porch which has eventually opened to create space from nature. As the house is characterized by simplicity, a single Japanese maple has been inserted as a foil to the simple black stained cedar cladding of the house.

On the part that faces the river, the elementary cantilevered form of the deck is surrounded by frameless glass. The porch and the deck, are placed opposite each other and stretch the space of the living room into an experience of the landscape. 

The kitchen benefits from high gloss cabinetry with sleek pulls and a glass tile backsplash. They all create a custom look while staying within the modest budget.

The ingenious combination of natural and industrial materials is also present in the interior design. Bamboo flooring and cabinetry bring warmth to the master suite of this Canadian home. The open-riser stair with its glass railing keeps the lower level family room feeling connected to the main living space.
