Beautiful scenery and wide open feels are two of many cool things that you can feel from glass house plans. From time to time, the glass has been used as one of the most important materials in human’s house. The unique character of the glass can make a whole new feeling to a room, from make it feels larger, change the room temperature, or as the unique accent for your home. The Canadian studio Christopher Simmonds Architect took this idea into their project, the Ottawa River House, by using a huge amount of glass material in it.
When you see the Ottawa River Home from the first time, your first impression will be glass house plans with cubical shape and simple exterior decoration. There are not so many things to say about its decoration, but it is what that makes it special: the simplicity. The cubical shape fill most of the exterior, creates rigid lines that intersecting each other, a typical of modern house. Black and gray are used to neutralize the glass effect, giving a clean ultramodern view from the outside that ‘glows’ in the night. There is a cool deck on the front side that can be a good place to relax and see the surrounding scenery.
The interior is fulfilled by the showering sun light, giving a warm appearance to most of its room. The color scheme is built based on basic color composed in sharp contrast: white, black, and dark brown, giving a wide and clean appearance. It is all fulfilled by natural materials such as woods and stone, giving a unique combination alongside the modern furniture of the house. The picturesque setting makes every room having a view to its surrounding, with the most astounding view come from the back side of the house, from the bathroom that located right on the side of Ottawa river. Taking a bath in hot water alongside the wonderful scenery of the river and the warm fireplace next to the bathtub will be so wonderful, right?
