Crafted by Studio Guilherme Torres the modern home is located on the highest point of a condominium project and its innovative design makes most of the view on offer even while ensuring complete privacy. With wood and concrete shaping both the exterior and the interior of the home the architects relied on simplicity of materials smart ergonomics and modern minimalism to fashion a spacious and cheerful interior.
By adding a large floor-to-ceiling glass window in the living area towards the south and the east the kitchen sitting zone and dining space now enjoy unabated view of the hypnotic scenery outside. Even the loft style bedroom gets a long window of its own that allows guests to take in the sights and sounds of Eidsvåg even as they soak in its comfort.
A smaller and lower cottage can feel very secure and intimate a little space within a vast nature to be enjoyed in. It really puts itself in the center of attention without being too extravagant. The Godendart cabin is located Parc National de la Jacques Cartier only 4 hours North of Montréal.
It is both the searing heat of and durability of composite timber that encouraged the architects to use it while shaping both the timber screening and the generous outdoor decks. It is the deck that connects with both the living area on the first level and the bedrooms on the second level and usher in the outdoors.
But that is not the only space that was altered to meet the growing demands of an urban family. The more rigid kitchen of the house with a counterproductive U-shaped kitchen layout was replaced by a new kitchen where a smart worktop and ergonomic island combine modern minimalism with industrial overtones.
The top cantilevered level is dedicated exclusively to private spaces even as a large deck brings the outdoors inside on the lower level. A double-height void acts as the central fulcrum of the home that brings in even more ventilation and ushers in a sense of spaciousness.
On first look you would be forgiven for believing that this gorgeous home is set in a calm and tranquil suburb far off from a big city and its constant rush. But set on a leafy and secluded lot in the offers a serene oasis that allows its residents to escape the rigors sights and sounds of the urban jungle that surrounds them.
