Located in Cantley, Quebec, Canada, the Gatineau Hills residential project was designed by the practice of Christopher Simmonds Architect with a modern style that integrates very well with the dense foliage of the hills nearby.
The forest that surrounds the home ensures privacy and thus the designers could opt for an open plan that maintains a constant connection with the beautiful natural landscape. Reclaimed wood covers the façade along with white cement and the ground floor features a lot of glass.
The interior design is modern and has rustic touches such as hand-scraped oak flooring, hand-forged handles and pulls that are set against white lacquer. On the ground floor the spaces are interconnected to ease the flow from one another and this also helps the natural light to pass throughout.
The exterior has a terrace and a large swimming pool and you can also see the beautiful surroundings through a balcony that opens from the master bedroom.
