Elegant residence by z axis design

Nowadays most people opt for contemporary designs for their homes. This means they basically adopt the same elements: minimalist décor, simple color palettes, eye-catching accent features. This residence is no exception. However, it does have something unique that distinguishes from all the other contemporary homes.

The house was a project by Toronto-based architecture firm Z Axis Design. It’s a typical contemporary home. It has a minimalist interior design, spotlights throughout the house and floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The exterior is very simple as well. However, the front façade is quite different from the back area. It’s a contrasting mix of light and dark colors with an asymmetrical design. The back, however, hides an unexpected surprise: an entrance that beautifully blends with the outdoors. It’s a brick wall with a rough structure and a very interesting texture.

The interior design is not that spectacular. It’s very elegant and stylish but it’s missing the spectacular. The kitchen is very beautiful and mostly covered in wood. It has stainless steel appliance and an entire wall covered with wood cabinets. The kitchen island also serves as a bar. Another interesting room is the bathroom which is surprisingly spacious. It has floor-to-ceiling windows and crisp white walls complemented by wood furniture. The rest of the house seems very quiet and enjoyable. The living room has a white fireplace and a huge window that allows panoramic views of the exterior area.
