If there’s a lesson to be learned from LEGUË Architecture Inc.‘s ‘Projet Dion’, it’s this: windows are key. Though it may be obvious, the gravity of obvious cannot be overlooked. And this Canadian family home, in all its sunlit glory, is the perfect example of that. Keep scrolling to see more.
Sticks and Stones
Inside, a mix of stone and timber textures set the stage for a contemporary aesthetic which references nature. Durable, yet visually warm, these materials are the perfect match for everyday family living.
The hallway is a particular highlight for us. We especially love those double-height ceilings, and of course, the windows. Together, they immediately grace this home with an easy airiness that most interior designers would kill for.
Also note how the clear glass banisters strategically allow for all that light to filter through. LEGUË Architecture Inc. weren’t kidding when they said the importance of natural light was the main ingredient of this design.
A Contemporary Aesthetic
The choice of furniture is simple yet functional. There’s an echo of minimalism throughout the home – decorative ornaments are few and far between. Instead, the beauty of nature serves as the Dion Residence’s answer to art and sculpture.
Walnut tones and a splash of red offer a classic take on the children’s nursery. The aesthetic is timeless, allowing the room to grow with the kids as they get older without the need for drastic renovation.
