Designed to meet the demands of a family with a young child and a dog the modern-minimal interior had to be both refined and kid-friendly without seeming far too sterile or impersonal. This was accomplished using a combination of raw textures and wood along with a neutral backdrop and pops of bright color.
Is all about going green in more ways than one. It all starts with a floor plan that places emphasis on an uncluttered open look allowing light to freely flow from one level to another. Add to this smart design that reduces reliance on heating and cooling systems and you have an absolute gem of a home!
Since the home sits on a corner lot this clever blend of privacy and openness was an absolute must even as the rooftop garden and a series of skylights bring a sense of freshness and cheerful warmth to the modern interior.
The color palette inside the home is largely neutral with pops of green red and orange being used carefully to spice up the interior. Innovative lighting and unassuming décor complete this modern chalet that is both exceptional and exquisite.
Designed by Jaime Ortiz de Zevallos the home features an interior that is completely hidden from the world outside. Yet the rear part of the house opens up toward the garden and pool area with a cantilevered bedroom section providing shade for the outdoor living space below.
A style like Scandinavian perfectly lends itself to green design because of its innate simplicity practicality and emphasis on the minimal aspect of design. This is precisely why APPAREIL architecture opted for a modern Nordic look as they revamped an old home in Montreal to create a sustainable elegant and energetic home that is full of cheer.
Despite these limitations turns out to be a stunning residence that blurs the line between the interior and the landscape around it even while creating a sense of privacy and modernity. At the core of this design are two simple rectangular volumes with the lower unit holding the living areas and the top block containing the private spaces.
