For this spectacular seaside home, Jill Greaves Design worked with Omar Gandhi Architect, 2014 recipient of the Professional Prix de Rome prize in Architecture.
A favourite, long-time collaborator of JGD, Omar Gandhi and his team designed this new residence to maximize the incredible views from atop the rolling hills of Inverness, Nova Scotia. For starters, the site affords a panorama view of Cape Breton’s coast line, and looks inland, at the town’s waterfront and the Cabot Links golf course – a rolling green gem that is ranked among the top 100 courses in the world by Golf Magazine and Golf Digest.
With its all-cedar exterior and gabled roof, the house stays very much in line with the vernacular style of the area. However, the feel of the new structure is also undeniably modern, thanks in part to the open concept floor plan, sleek interior surfaces and really confident use of glass.
