This stunning contemporary residence is located in Scotch Cove, a cove in East Chester, Nova Scotia, in Canada. It was designed by Susan Fitzgerald of the Halifax based firm FBM Architecture | Interior Design in 2017 and covers a total ground area of 2,560 square feet.
The home was designed for a couple in their seventies who nevertheless practice an active lifestyle and continues to work, as well as their extended, grown-up family members. The structure was designed following a concept of organization of shelter and space, while encasing it in a building with an architecture that breathes timelessne.
The main structure includes two bedrooms, a living space that is used as a gallery to celebrate family artists, a space for gathering and for games, a kitchen, a large dining area for celebrations, and a sewing room for arts and crafts. A sheltered forecourt holds an area to park cars and partake in washer toss and croquet.
The interior combines a variety of materials, such as wood, glass, and polished concrete. Such a combination results in a décor that is refreshing and contemporary, while still recalling the earthiness of the natural landscape that surrounds the structure, connecting them both together.
