contemporary-home-exterior

This contemporary home was designed by Narratif and built by Chatsworth Fine Homes, located on a beautiful property overlooking a ravine in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Clean lines and an off-white palette evokes a contemporary minimalist interior in this beautiful modern farmhouse design.

Neutral colors are used extensively, contrasted by natural woodgrains of paneling and barn doors, and the off-white walls create a perfect backdrop for the owner’s valued art collection. Glass railings adorn the modern staircase as one moves between floors.

It is common for a homeowner couple to have very different tastes and ideas about how their spaces should look: one wanted something modern, minimalist, and monochromatic; the other wanted something softer and more traditional. The result was a design that appealed to both sensibilities, creating a contemporary design with traditional scale and proportions, blending in very comfortably into the surrounding neighborhood.

What We Love: Showcasing a contemporary minimalist interior, this home is both attractive and energy-efficient. A neutral backdrop helps to not detract from the views of the surrounding woodlands on this beautiful property. Extensive glazing not only captures the beauty of nature but floods the living spaces with natural light. Overall, we are loving the clean lines and farmhouse details that make this modern home warm and welcoming.

The exterior was also sheathed with foam.

On the interior of this 4,230 square foot home, spaces are light, bright, and airy. With hardly any actual hallways, the house is a series of spaces that flow and connect together through a very fluid path of travel. Neutral concrete floors and white walls provide a contemporary gallery-like feel, as a backdrop to the owner’s colorful taste in art and furnishings.
