Birchview House in Ontario, Canada by Prototype Design Lab

The design concept for this house is born from the interplay of different volumes that distinctly accentuate the facets of the clients’ lifestyle. All of the bedrooms and private spaces are contained within a volume clad with large slabs of creamcoloured stone, with minimal window openings. The house is organized around a central, twostorey grand foyer and space in which the clients can entertain guests. Wrapped in verticallyoriented Brazillian ipe, this space becomes a twostorey gallery and projects out into the expansive back-yard with an indoor-outdoor pool, above which a custom hand-blown bubble chandelier seems to extend the concept of water upward.
