The Oak Residence is a single-family house built by Hatem+D Architecture in collaboration with Etienne Bernier Architecte. The house is located on Oak Avenue, Quebec, Canada and offers a new breath to the surrounding area. While Hatem+D Architecture / Etienne Bernier Architecte were responsible for the construction, Mélanie Ducharme was in charge of the house interior design.
The Oak Residence
The architects were asked to come up with a modern and minimalist home design idea to sit well with the residential context. Above all, the house should be able to optimize both proximity and intimacy. Fortunately, they managed to fulfill the client’s wishes with this Oak Residence.
The Oak Residence is situated in a very green environment so to support this, the architects decided to select natural materials, such as steels, dark bricks, and stained natural wood. These materials were able to present the natural side of the neighborhood as well as the house’s courtyard.
Wide Bay Windows
Through these wide bay windows, natural light can easily bath the house while offering intimate and discrete front. As for the car entrance, it is located on the left side of the house.
Formal Dining Room
The formal dining is arranged near the kitchen. The modern and dark dining furniture like the table and chairs were selected, creating a contrast to the concrete flooring and white walls. A caged pendant was selected as the light fixture for the area.
The modern kitchen is equipped with a wall oven, white cabinets, and marble counters with under-mount sinks.
There is also an additional dining space with the table attached to the counter.
Behind this space, you can see a kitchen pantry as well.
To match the modern and minimalist flair of this living place, the designer went with equally modern and minimalist void staircase with wood tread and glass railing.
The slate floors were installed in the bathroom. As for the furniture, the designer went with marble counters with under-mount sinks, a white marble tub, and full showers.
