Fraser Residence is a beautiful two-story residence situated in Westboro Village, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Christopher Simmonds Architect designed the house as juxtaposed and interweaving volumes that define the exterior and the vast interior. A very important material in this project is glass, which allows natural light to flow into the house, and blurs the inside-outside boundary.
The garage was placed into the lower level, to allow space for the elongated porch. The building blends into the landscape due to the stained cedar siding, earth-toned brick, and dark bronze aluminum glazing, which create a neutral exterior palette. The interior is characterized by the contrast between the white walls and the dark oak floors. The simplicity of this house enhances its elegance and luxury.
