Modern home design is completed designed by the architect Brian MacKay-Lyons Urban Design. This modern home design is located in West Pennant, Nova Scotia, Canada. This home was ordered by the architect client Vivian and David Howard.
This modern home design has a 12 foot wide and 110 foot in long wall which is playing a didactic role within both the natural and the cultural landscapes. This modern home design is precisely sits on a four acre field which is surrounded by the sea on the three sides: east to the domesticated fishing cove, west located to the nearby wild, open ocean and south to the immediate shore of a bay.
Its ‘rough-and-ready’ wrapper is in keeping with the dog-patch-like cultural landscape context. The interior skin of this living space is standard, industrial, corrugated galvalume. The top-of-concrete line of the foundation which is raised is expressing the relatively high cost of the greeting out of the ground in cold climates and it is also forming a horizontal datum against the opposing slopes of the land and the roof. A heavy, concrete stair bump is a protective gesture against the prevailing westerly winds which is coming off the sea.
Modern Home Design Architecture
To the entry court, to the kitchen, living and cantilevered deck, the monolithic, monopitch roof climbs to the south and the water covering one continuous, unobstructed living space which is progressing from the garage. The totemic elements which is inflect it and provide the comfort and place-making such as bridge, well, hearth, truss, south window are punctuated this tube. In the major living area, the spatial reading of the concrete foundation is makes a wainscoting sill here. The lower level inside this living space is occupied by three bedrooms, while a master bedroom/study is occupies a second floor loft. The conventional platform framing is exposed the de-laminated walls and the ceiling.
This living space is exploits a passive environmental approach to heating and the ventilation. Which clearly demonstrates a 12’ wide wall in the landscape, it is an essay on the relationship between form and the lifestyle, and it is also provide the spatial and the functional requirements of the modern living.
The architect result project is a tough rather than a sentimental architecture. This living space minimalism has less to do with Mies van der Rohe, and more to do with the zeroness which is found in the pragmatism of the vernacular. It is contemporary by its use of the ordinary building conventions of its time and place, just like the vernacular.
