Adding to the planet-friendly features here is a passive heating and cooling system and cross ventilation that maintains moderate temperatures indoors along with bringing in a flood of natural light.
Accomplishing precisely this is the creative in Canada. Designed by TACT Design INC. with a distinct Cor-Ten steel face the three-story family dwelling definitely stands out from the other mundane homes in the neighborhood.
It is the view outside filled with rolling hills the sight of bright city lights after sunset and endless greenery that defines the pavilion-style upper level of the home where glass walls redefine the indoor-outdoor dynamic. Designed by Obra Arquitetos it is the dining room spacious living area and a classy kitchen in black and white that make up this floor.
A sculptural staircase connects the three floors with the kitchen dining area and living space being housed on the ground level and a gorgeous study and wraparound terrace on the third floor.
On one side of the home is the large and open living area with a sparkling living space a family zone that extends into the wooden deck outdoors an ergonomic kitchen with ample storage space a full-fledged pantry and of course a home workstation or two for those who need one. It is the opposite section that holds the lavish master bedroom three additional bedrooms bathrooms a powder room and other specific spaces that the homeowner might need.
The old kitchen was turned into an informal second entrance and workspace while a smart custom staircase next to the dining area also holds tiered storage closets that allow the homeowners to keep the interior far more organized.
Nestled atop a hill and overlooking a breathtaking landscape the striking contemporary home stands out visually from the front even as its green roof allows it to blend into the natural landscape. And seeming to float over the hillside is the amazing pool that also comes with a cool solar deck covering!
