Natural Light

An airy, solar-powered living room.

The owners of this Eastern Ontario home wanted to build "a modern house with all the conveniences that was also an example of living sustainably." A leather Eames chair, streamlined sofa and a wood, metal and glass coffee table are modern, minimalist touches in this living room. The wall of windows and massive beams emphasize height in the open-concept space while also providing a natural heat source. In the summer, an overhanging roof keeps the sun from overheating the space.
