The Beaumount House

The other day I was scouring Pinterest, since I had some time on my hands, and I came across this house that just seemed to pop out of the screen of my laptop, because of the way it uses one of my favorite materials- exposed concrete! The first image that I saw of this house was of its double height living room, and it was love at first site- I had to take a closer look. 

Located in a mixed use neighbourhood in Canada, The Beaumount House is designed by Henri Cleinge. To be honest, while I thought the exterior design of the house was ok, I was not 'wowed' by it. But the interiors are a whole other story. Bathed in shafts of filtered sunlight, that seem to dance across the stately exposed concrete walls and polished concrete floors, the interiors of this house are a dream!

The house subtly explores the play of volumes from within and the beautiful relationship that wood and concrete can have when used with balance and sensitivity. I simply love the interplay between, the softness of the simple walnut cabinetry and cedar ceilings, and the hard austereness of uncompromising concrete.

Take a look!

    this is a good looking house on the inside...although personally i prefer a little (lot) more color :) but sturdy industrial finishes and filtering sunlight is good combination!
