Live Modern: House on the Bluffs

Architecture & Interiors

This House on the Bluffs definitely looks like the sort of home we’d like to walk by at night, with all its windows lit up and warm and stunning. We like how very strong, bold and crisp the angles are. The home itself feels like a stacked grouping of rectangles, of different materials. These lighted cubes create a very modern and masculine feel. From Architizer:

“Perched on the edge of the Scarborough Bluffs, the dramatic views afforded by this site encompass lake and sky through the tall trunks of mature trees. The foundations of the owner’s childhood home have been reused to create a new residence that celebrates this spectacular location. This allowed us to leave the trees, some of which are growing very close to the house, untouched.

Viewed from the street, the house is a simple stucco box distinguished by a screen of vertical channel glass that provides privacy while allowing diffuse natural light into the stair, guest bathroom and master bathroom. At night it glows like an oversized lantern.”

    Wow, what a cool home. Love the wood beams on the balcony and the black framing on the windows and doors. Is that aluminum?
