A Nørkær+Poulsen Architects design the fabulous Danish home brings classic Scandinavian design principles to a modern home that needs to brave harsh coastal weather while creating comfortable living space.
Elegant little additions like the sliding barn door at the entrance and the bespoke illuminated wooden stairway give you an early indication of what to expect inside. The living area acquires more flexibility thanks to the use of glass walls with a dark frame which can easily delineate spaces when needed. Different shades of gray lend a sense of sophistication to the open living space even as the new kitchen and dining zone in white effortlessly flows into the lush green courtyard outside.
It is the sparkling plunge pool along with the suspended wooden deck and the rear garden that steal the spotlight at this Canadian home. But there is much more on offer than Oceanside vistas as the interior perfectly complements the unassuming contemporary façade.
The lower level holds the spacious painting studio that is filled with natural light bedrooms and other utility spaces. Then there is the roof with its minimal terrace small garden and a splendid pool that allows the homeowner to take the very best views that Gaucin has to offer. A central atrium and additional patio bring light into the double height studio where there is ample wall space to display all the latest creations of Joseba Zabaleta.
The white walls of the residence present a contrasting backdrop even as the carefully carved out niche in the wall doubles as a fun sitting and lounging nook. Step in further and you will come across the smart outdoor sitting zone that is sheltered by the natural contours of the building.
A series of decks outdoor patios and infinity pool shape the landscape around the mountain villa with luxury being combined with efficiency almost flawlessly. A dashing kitchen in white with red radiance modular décor in the living room and colorful décor bring brightness to an interior that is otherwise relaxing and neutral.
It is the living room where this fusion starts as a marble fireplace wall sits snugly next to the accent wooden wall that holds the entertainment center. Despite white and shades of gray being dominant throughout the house the interior feels anything but monotonous.
