Lighthouse is a fascinating architecture project designed by Linebox Studio and located in Ottawa’s Lindenlea community. Especially developed for a family of five, this welcoming home has a total surface of 4500 square feet  (418 sqm), which is more than enough living space for its inhabitants.The crib manages to combine traditional rural details with modern urban ones thus ensuring a harmonious environment. The first striking aspect of this residence is the unique façade which was oriented north in order to ensure a high level of privacy in the opposite south side. According to the project’s official description, the design is based on a”vertical stacking of both open and closed spaces and minimal details that establish an ascending hierarchy of social and private spaces.Answering the needs for both intimacy and connectivity and located in a serene and inviting place , Lighthouse seems like the perfect family retreat.  (Photography: Christian Lalonde)
