Canadian designers at Omar Gandhi Architect know a thing or two about creating stylish, minimalist spaces. Evidence of that is the contemporary home they recently designed in Nova Scotia.
The remote home was built for an active Swiss family who wanted a holiday retreat. Located in Argyle on the southern tip of Nova Scotia, the home offers a range of outdoor activities such as swimming, boating and hiking.
Designers made sure to capture sweeping, wide views of the surrounding marshland, small islands, and the Tusket River. In addition to accentuating its surroundings, the home also blends into its environment thanks to its low-slung design and almost semicircular floor plan.
The home is bathed in cedar — a durable and contextually appropriate material — as well as glass. These materials lend light and warmth, respectively, while the interior maintains an incredibly clean look thanks to numerous modern design details, such as an iconic Eames lounge chair and other tasteful touches.
