The philosophy of ‘less is more’ seems to be getting popular pretty fast. The number of homes that are adopting and adapting to the trend of minimalism and semi-minimalism is a tribute to this design principle. It is both aesthetically and economically sound strategy to employ and the Hewitt Avenue Home in Toronto Canada seems to have chosen a similar path. Designed by Altius Architecture the home owners wanted a sleek efficient and ergonomic modern home.
In the next featured image we get a closer look at the way a curved silo adds a tiled wall effect to this charming bathroom. Traditional features combine with the industrial backdrop created by the silo wall.
The Oil Silo Home’s interior is no less impressive than its exterior. Would you have expected a rendering with anything but modern decor?! Clean-lined sofas add comfort and sleek style while an indoor garden is the ultimate green statement:
We end with a shot of the interior of the Blue Crest which once again features wooden flooring and large windows. When it comes to modular housing the interiors often reflect the modern sensibility of the homes’ exteriors. In other words sometimes less is more. Not to mention modern decor really pops inside of these dwellings:
Rather than consisting of a silo converted into a home this next dwelling features silos that have been cleverly integrated into the architecture. In fact this amazing house by Hudson Architects is a converted 16th century Essex barn.
Adding more charm to this mesmerizing home there’s also a small pool to make those sunny summer days more bearable and a fancy terrace to enjoy a cold beer with the family in the evenings or a good cup of coffee in the morning while reading the news. Saying that this is a dream home is nothing but an understatement. Not sure about you but we’ve just been left drooling …
One of the striking features of the home is its extensive use of glass for the top level that gives those inside gorgeous views of snowy slopes in winter and lush green canopy in the summer months. With no beams or dividing walls being employed the vacation home has a ‘barn like’ atmosphere that is uncluttered and uncomplicated. The top floor sports the living and dining spaces that are all connected visually on one level while the bottom level of the home offers ample privacy.
