Zen Barn by Christopher Simmonds Architecture

By Inthralld on Feb 21, 2013

When thinking of complete tranquility and zen-like qualities, we doubt that the word “barn” comes to mind. After seeing this amazing home by Christopher Simmonds Architecture, you will probably think a little different.

Not only is the home a peaceful escape from the outside world, this Ottawa space is also in the process of becoming certified for a LEED Platinum rating. The structure itself is a clean, linear vision with glazing and wood all over. The view to the interior is crisp and white with pops of red accents and neutral tones. Heated concrete flooring makes the minimal space a luxe experience, with the main objects of decor on the walls and within the furniture.
