Fraser Residence Christopher Simmonds Architect

Juxtaposed volumes define the exterior appearance of this modern home while interweaving special volumes define the expansive interior. A generous transparency floods the living spaces with natural light and connects the home with compact yet effective outdoor living spaces.
The house takes advantage of its sloping site by inserting the garage into the lower level. This allows the elongated porch and glazed projections of the living spaces to define the home’s character in the streetscape. Subtle earth-toned brick, stained cedar siding and dark bronze aluminum glazing systems form the house’s neutral exterior palette which allow it to ease gently into a more traditional context.
A minimal palette of dark oak floors and cabinetry contrast the white surfaces of the gallery-like interior and its modern art collection.
This simplicity ensures that the people are the foreground and the home is the background of day to day living.
