Altius Architecture have given this 1970’s lakeside home in Parry Sound, Canada, a modern house renovation. A semi-circle floor plan with an open layout are used along with, clean white interiors and various lighting to keep the house light and airy.

 

Stepping inside the house, the front entrance is bright and welcoming with the use of down lighting on a white brick wall, and a skylight. Selected art pieces are displayed by spot lighting, and a white shelf.

Next to the dining room is the kitchen, with grey cabinets and stone countertops providing plenty of storage and work space. A built-in banquette at the end of the kitchen counter creates an additional and more casual dining area.
