The Modern Farmhouse

July 19, 2017 Todd Hewines

This new home in North Hatley, Quebec, takes a modern approach to the original farmhouse while still reflecting the comforts of a farmhouse. The client's directions to the architect Lee and MacGillivray Architecture Studio (LAMAS) were to pay homage to barns but create a clean space inside.

The exterior of this home is clad with reclaimed hemlock sourced from the exterior of century old Canadian barns.

Inside is a clean, open layout with European Oak wide plank flooring throughout complimented by vintage furniture pieces that help blend the lines between modern and rustic.

Northern Wide Plank's handcrafted stair treads were used for a perfect match to the specialty wide plank flooring.

A perfect example of modern and rustic elements complimenting each other; seen here where the wide plank flooring meets the herringbone pattern brick floor of the entry way.
