Modern country house cantilevers over a rolling landscape in Ontario

Contemporary Home Design-Trevor McIvor Architect-09-1 Kindesign

This modern country house was completed in 2017 by Trevor McIvor Architect Inc, located in on a rolling field about 40 minutes north of Toronto in Stouffville, Ontario, Canada. Stouffville is a charming rural town, surrounded by a countryside of beautiful forests and rolling hills—an idyllic place to raise a family. This spectacular home was inspired by the stone walls that were used to separate farmers fields.

This 5,000 square foot, four bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom residence is grounded in the earth then cantilevered over a rolling landscape. The stone entry wall, low and private, hints program through a series of translucent glass boxes punching through the otherwise monolithic wall. This wall acts as a key organizational element anchoring a series of glass volumes that open up to the south of the project overlooking the property and offering commanding views of the landscape.

The orientation of the project intends to minimize the building’s impact on the area while maximizing site lines and access to light. The roof seemingly floats above the stone entry wall suggesting a more gestural and dynamic roof on the buildings other face. Finishes include local granite, Canadian cedar, polished concrete. Radiant in-floor heating is provided by a trenched geothermal loop.

What We Love: Although modern in it’s design, this home offers warmth from wood ceilings and expansive windows that blurs indoor-outdoor boundaries. The exterior design of this home is incredible, with a wall of stone at the front of the facade, while the rear of the facade is cantilevered over the rolling hillside. Concrete flooring gives the home a clean aesthetic, while white walls keeps the space feeling bright and airy… Readers, what are your thoughts on this modern country house, could you envision living here?
