Nova Scotia Home by Alexander Gorlin Architects

Nova Scotia Home is a project completed by Alexander Gorlin Architects.
The stunning contemporary house is located on Ketch Harbour, Nova ScotiaCanada.

Nova Scotia Home by Alexander Gorlin Architects:
“On a rocky, granite cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Ketch Harbour, Nova Scotia, this 8,000 square foot house is a series of angled glass and raw concrete pavilions that capture the dramatic landscape in each direction.
Crowned by gently curving zinc roofs, each pavilion frames views of a historic lighthouse, the sea-lanes to Halifax and a WWII Allied bunker.

Set along a linear entry hallway, the pavilions also define programmatic areas, with the den, living and dining rooms, the kitchen and master bedroom each ensconced in their own space.
Further enhancing the experience of the site, two additional bedrooms on the second level cantilever off the main body of the house.
Landscaped terraces provide a platform for lounging areas with long outdoor patios. Wild rocks and crashing waves are as sublime a site as any in the world, and the house is a perfect balance between architecture and nature.”

Beautiful Villa Chic

Villa Chic is a stunning villa located in the heart of TuscanyItaly.
The home is surrounded by rolling hills and has an elegant contemporary interior, making it the perfect spot to spend a few relaxing days.

Villa Chic:
“Villa Chic is located 15 kilometers (9.32 miles) from the historic center of Cortona, in Tuscany. We, a French couple, husband and wife from Paris, conducted its renovation after we decided to create rental homes just like those they kept on looking for, years ago, when they fell in love with Tuscany.
The outside style of the buildings has been for the most part preserved but the inside has been entirely re-organised according to a minimalist and comfortable combination. The accommodations present design furniture mostly Italian, as well as furniture designed by the owners.
The property offers 8 sleeps in 4 bedrooms, 3 in the house and 1 in the independent guest house, also with its own private pool. Both houses can be rented separately. All bedrooms have their own bathroom and air conditioning.

Ground floor: main living with fireplace and flat screen TV, dining room for up to 8 people, fully equipped kitchen, secondary living, bathroom (shower).
First floor: 1 bedroom with 1 double bed and closet, 1 bedroom with 2 twin beds (double bed possible), closet and bathroom (shower), 1 bedroom with 1 double bed, dressing room and bathroom (shower). Each bedroom has a panoramic countryside view.
Outside, a lounge area under the shade sail for up to 8 guests is on the east of the main house, and, turning its back to the south part of the house, a big terrace with shades and dining table for up to 8 people looks down the pool and the landscape from a panoramic position.
Guest house
1 bedroom with double bed and flat screen TV, closet, drawers, and bathroom (shower), both with pool and countryside view, kitchen, living room with garden view.
