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 coming in at all.
