Skylights that usher in a flood of natural light and smart artificial lighting complete an exquisite home where ergonomics and frugality take precedence over outlandish style and aesthetics!
Designed by Toronto-based firm Ian MacDonald Architect the silhouette of the cabin is intentionally kept modest and low-lying to ensure that it blends in with the landscape that surrounds it. In fact those visiting the cabin can only sense its presence as they climb up the dock that leads to the structure.
But the smart rear extension of the house offers much more than the 1.5-feet-deep . The sunken design of the living area also turns it into a lovely gathering space for friends and family and the open design of the new extension along with the corridor and kitchen ensure that there is a flood of filtered light indoors.
Add to it the fact that the room is largely devoid of permanent fixtures and rigid features and it can be easily turned into an additional family room home office or even a guest space a few years down the line.
A modern residence that is much more than a mere giant ‘cube’ always draws attention as it sets itself apart from the crowd. When it comes to an ingenious street façade that is both elegant and artistic this gorgeous is an absolute winner!
While the public spaces seem far more transitional the bedroom and bathrooms completely embrace cool contemporary style with minimal décor and a white and gray color scheme. Beautiful blue accents a floating wooden vanity in the bathroom and a shower area with penny tiles add visual contrast even as cleverly placed artwork and wall murals in the kids’ room usher in a hint of bright color.
And even if you are not really into the sci-fi saga it is hard to turn away from this magical apartment where every little detail has been carefully crafted to fulfill the fantasy of its homeowners. Star Wars fanatic or not this is an interior that demands attention! The stunning was crafted with great care by White Interior Design and every detail here pays tribute to the Star Wars universe.
