Walls clad in Larch plywood add another layer of intrigue to this ingenious Japanese residence where different styles and spaces amalgamate effortlessly! It is easy to see the charm of even without really getting into the finer details and the many eco-friendly features that it boasts.
With the living areas situated on the front and the rear containing the bedrooms privacy is easily combined with unabated views here. A neutral color scheme comfy modern furniture and curated artwork from India and Myanmar put the finishing touches on this exceptional and exclusive Ontario delight!
But as you move through the home a brick and glass ‘tunnel’ connects the old existing residence with a standalone modern addition creating a seamless transition between the past and the future! Designed by MODO this unique approach brings much more than mere renewed aesthetics with natural light flooding through the renovated interior.
When brilliant architecture meets a breathtaking natural landscape the result is often a dream home that not only offers you a window into an exotic and relaxing world but also creates a dwelling that seems like an extension of the scenery that surrounds it.
In fact the street façade only gives you a slight glimpse of the actual interior with two pod-like structures popping out of the otherwise green scenery. Then there is the smart waterproof rubber membrane that wraps itself around the exterior of the home to make sure that the moisture does not seep through from the green roof into the living area.
The open living space on the lower level also houses a smart dining area and a contemporary kitchen with cabinets and a central island in white. Despite the obvious lack of color indoors it is the garden and woodlands outside that make up for this shortage as they become a visual part of the interior.
But it is the central courtyard that is the true showstopper here as it becomes the heart and soul of this Aussie home where life outside seems far more alluring than indoors! Turning the natural slope of the site into an advantage the interior features a stepwise arrangement of spaces with each one flowing into the next.
