Canadian firm Christopher Simmonds Architect have helped realize this contemporary residence in the suburbs of the country’s capital, Ottawa. While the exterior bares many of the cubist hallmarks that have come to be associated with modern architecture since the advent of Le Corbusier, it’s the interior that really offers something special. The floor-to-ceiling windows on both walls of the top deck create an exceptionally light living area in which the sitting room, dining area and kitchen all flow into one another; meanwhile, the use of rich, caramel-esque woods for the dining table, kitchen counter, stairs and bannisters breaks up the grey tones of the furniture perfectly. This theme is extended throughout the property, from the bathroom to the bedroom, creating a harmonious space with a clearly defined aesthetic across all areas.
