The gorgeous home now features a blend of the 50s Ranch style rustic touches that give it inviting warmth and modern ergonomics that make the life of its young homeowners an absolute delight.
Uncomplicated in its design and responding to the unique demands of the countryside in which it sits Casa Chontay manages to combine serenity and comfort with traditional construction techniques.
Despite the more traditional backdrop one is never far away from modern ergonomics and comfort here. Artwork and sculptural pieces that reflect Vietnamese culture and heritage complete this masterful vertical house.
The major focus inside was on lighting and ventilation with a series of skylights and the stairwell bringing sunlight from the top level into the lower floor. Large open and sweeping spaces are clad in white to accentuate the positives while the existing wooden trusses are combined with a modern ceiling to bring in the best of both worlds.
Turning this dream into a beautiful reality for a modern Canadian family is the striking Val des Monts cottage nestled in the picturesque Gatineau hills. With a cantilevered structure that offers breathtaking views of the lake next to it and the surrounding forest landscape the dreamy family cottage designed by Christopher Simmonds Architect Inc. combines rustic scenery with warm modernism.
Prefabricated homes make life a lot easier for those looking to keep construction costs down even while ensuring that much of the work is done offsite. But another advantage of prefab homes is the speed that they bring to the development of a new residence; something that simply cannot be matched by on-site designs.
Exposed brick wall sections in various rooms also add to the appeal of an otherwise contemporary setting with the lower level containing the living area and the top floor housing the bedrooms along with the kitchen and dining space.
