Zen Barn

Ottawa, Ontario

The linear composition of this house and site is interrupted by the volumes of lightwells, stairs and courtyard. The resulting interpenetration of views, light and space along the south side of the home result in strong indoor outdoor connections.

Heated exposed concrete floors ensure comfort in the presence of large glazed areas. Cabinetry in matte white lacquer and stained ash veneer flow through the interconnected kitchen, living and dining spaces. Reclaimed white oak boards clad the exterior volumes.

This is a LEED Platinum certified home and a multi-award winner in 2013 – Peoples’ Choice, Best New Build in Community, Green Custom Home of the Year, and Best Custom Home in its size category.

Fantastic experience/voyage
