Sustainable design and green home architecture are much more than a mere compilation of the latest smart home technology that saves up on energy. Design planning and the overall silhouette of the house also play a pivotal role in shaping the power and resource consumption of the structure.
The rooftop terrace looks almost like an unfinished roof and its cool pergola-inspired design offers smart shade during the day and also lets in natural heat and light for the beautiful vegetable and fruit garden. This lovely blend of aesthetics and natural goodness turns the terrace into a serene and refreshing personal haven that has a style of its own!
Making smart use of space the style of the house seems to perfectly complement the natural canopy outside. Relaxed and inventive this is a renovation that moves away from the mundane! Presenting a perfect blend of serenity opulence and minimalist elegance this gorgeous glass house in Oakville was crafted by architect Guido Costantino.
The owners of this beautiful home initially wanted an interior with strong Moroccan flavor but as time went on they decided to move away from the dramatic bright colors and bold patterns in favor of a more rustic look. Soon they turned towards the traditional English style as it reminded the husband of his native country and also offered a lovely balance between the rustic and the modern.
Warm wooden panels exposed concrete walls large sliding glass doors and plush decor ensure that there is ample textural contrast throughout the house. With the distant sea acting as the backdrop the open living area kitchen and dining space are indeed a visual delight!
The ground floor contains the living room the dining area and the kitchen along with two bedrooms for the kids. The top level houses the master suite along with the gorgeous rooftop garden.
Surrounding the house is a dense oak forest and the designer took complete advantage of the views outside as they form wonderful framed backdrops in the kitchen the dining room and the bedroom. An open-plan living area with a comfy sectional a corner fireplace and unassuming decor is visually connected with the garden outside. The master suite boys’ bedroom with twin beds and a stylish girl’s bedroom are housed on the top level.
