With the influx of contemporary housing and architecturally-driven home design, it can be easy to lose the core essence of comfort and livability that a well-built home should possess. For the designers at Constantino Studio, good architecture does not have to come at the expense of a unique, down-home feeling. Situated in Ontario, Canada, the “44 Belvedere” home boasts an exterior that would make a design museum envy its sharp edges and clean linework, and yet, the amenities and interior construction is as welcoming as a quaint, off the beaten path family home. The open-air vibe of the home is augmented with the expansive window space that is created to both provide natural light to the interior while breaking apart the stark exterior wall space. Outside a patio area and below-ground pool complement the natural green grass and wooded environment in which the house was crafted.
