Tall pivoting glass doors connect the living area with the courtyard outside and the pool area is also accessible from the dining zone and the lovely kitchen. One again it is the L-shaped design of the house that allows it to create a flowing interaction between the indoor and outdoor areas.
A sleek staircase leads the way to the top floor that houses the private quarters which follow a similar color scheme and charm with ingenious textural beauty. Apart from the brilliant use of wood steel and concrete white is the color that dominates the overall setting with pops of green and yellow being used sparingly. A lovely backyard becomes an extension of the lower level living zone thanks to the use of sliding glass doors while a beautiful brick exterior stays true to the roots of the house.
Thanks to smart design and proper planning the entire shell of the cottage was put together in a mere two days and the interior was left largely unembellished to bring out the elegance of raw wooden surfaces. There is an innate minimal yet rustic appeal about the design which includes the clever addition of modern comforts.
The small living space and sitting area set the mood as the walls of the rooms are covered with amazing bright artwork that grabs your attention instantly. In fact you almost tend to overlook the presence of the unassuming decor and the existing wooden beams add a fascinating twist to the entire area.
Nothing matches the charm of a lovely natural landscape that surrounds the house and gives you a private getaway that is just a few steps away from the living room. Located in Ontario this beautiful home not only boasts a curated garden but also a tranquil natural pond that lets you unwind after a long hard day. Yet the home was largely closed to this ‘little paradise’ before the architects from AGATHOM revamped the floor plan and created a seamless interface between both the interior and the garden space.
This once semi-detached home was turned into a refreshing and ravishing modern bungalow for a family of four by blurring the line between the interior and the fabulous courtyard outside. The showstoppers of the house greet you as soon as you get past the which was added specifically to keep out any prying eyes!
