New Edinburgh House by Christoper Simmonds Architect
Christopher Simmonds Architect have designed the New Edinburgh House in Ottawa, Canada. This modern home mixes colors perfectly. Every single piece of furniture and material seem to be in the perfect place.
There is a strong connection between the interior and exterior though interruptions in the form of light wells, stairs and the courtyard.
The linear composition of this house and site is interrupted by the volumes of lightwells, stairs and courtyard. The resulting interpenetration of views, light and space along the south side of the home result in strong indoor / outdoor connections.
Heated exposed concrete floors ensure comfort in the presence of large glazed areas. Cabinetry in matte white lacquer and stained ash veneer flow through the interconnected kitchen, living and dining spaces. Reclaimed white oak boards clad the exterior volumes.
