Jerry Locati who stands behind Locati Architects and Locati Interiors which are internationally recognized in custom residential architecture and stands behind the Ontario residence for a couple’s property outside Toronto. The property has 10,000 square foot main house made of reclaimed wood and fieldstone which perfectly fits the landscape. It designed in rustic western style which could catch attention of every person who drives near by.
The main house is exceptionally transparent with big windows — some are as tall as 12 feet. Besides being made from natural material the house doesn’t hide or dress up anything, what make his rustic characteristics even more stronger. Most of the room’s furnishings, the designer says, are “low enough to allow your vision to go across” to the outdoors views. Taking an inspiration from mountain house designs it gets a traditional great room with grand fireplace. A strong outdoors connection is also felt in the bedroom of the master suite thanks to the external desk. In the result house is very nature-centric with all materials which was used to build it and everything what circles back to the outdoors. [Locati Architects]
