Bringing in plenty of natural light and giving the old home a brand new lease on life the lightweight extension does its very best to blend in with the existing brick façade even while showcasing elegant contrast. With the house being revamped even the rear garden and alfresco space were altered and given a fresh perspective with many of the indigenous ferns being carefully relocated and donated to Belgrave Square.
Designed by Aamer Architects the striking residence is located in a busy neighborhood and in front of a bus stop making its open and exquisite design even more impressive. Shaped using raw off-form concrete and gorgeous teak screens from Bali the house has an open and cheerful ambiance that complements its breezy exterior to perfection.
It is the glittering dining room that undoubtedly ends up being the showstopper of these transformed spaces with its silky chandelier vintage-inspired Orchidea cabinets and the silver and black Nanook Chairs from KOKET. But all these seem to only play second fiddle to the two diamond dust paintings of Marilyn Monroe and that should barely come as a surprise to anyone!
Perched on a lovely little lot that overlooks the shoreline this dreamy cabin epitomizes the classic architectural style of vacation homes in the Georgian Bay while giving those inside a chance to enjoy modern comfort and panoramic views.
It is the top floor that houses the luxurious master suite where the bedroom and bathroom become one visually even as two dashing bronze mirrors above the floating vanity steal the spotlight.
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!
Passive cooling techniques along with the presence of a pool ensure that the dependence on artificial cooling is kept to a minimum creating a pleasant ambiance and conserving energy at the same time.
