• The design of a modern house on the oceanfront in Canada
Country residence Lookout, designed by Omar Gandhi Architect, elegantly stretched along a narrow piece of land, located between the country road and high scenic sea shore in Inverness, Canada. This small coastal locality is popular among tourists and holidaymakers due to its sandy beaches, dunes and fields to world-class golf course.
Customers - a couple from Toronto, has three adult children - bought a narrow strip of coastline due to the magnificent sunset views of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, hoping to create a nest here, where the whole family can gather..
Disposition of the one-storey house is built along a long corridor with a series of adjoining public and private spaces, a view of the ocean shore.
Half of the building was given a large family room that includes a seating area, kitchen and living room. The center of this open space is a five-meter island, which serves both for cooking and as a dining table. At the other end of the house there are three compartments indicated the private area of the home - bedrooms and bathrooms.
Facade, addressed to the ocean shore, different panoramic windows, while the opposite retaining wall is provided with a number of upper windows, allowing to penetrate into the gentle rays of light from the northeast. Simple roof hangs over the building as a field hat pulled down low, to protect the interior space from the intense summer sun, and at the same time emphasizing the horizontal lines of the coastal landscape. Above the kitchen part of the roof rises like a visor, emphasizing the social heart of the home zone.
