Echo Beach modern-entry
 

Echo Beach

With a clear connection between the home and the Pacific Ocean beyond, this modern dwelling provides a west coast retreat for a young family. Forethought was given to future green advancements such as being completely solar ready and having plans in place to install a living green roof. Generous use of fully retractable window walls allow sea breezes to naturally cool living spaces which extend into the outdoors. Indoor air is filtered through an exchange system, providing a healthier air quality. Concrete surfaces on floors and walls add strength and ease of maintenance. Personality is expressed with the punches of colour seen in the Italian made and designed kitchen and furnishings within the home. Thoughtful consideration was given to areas committed to the clients’ hobbies and lifestyle.

About the lighting - I've seen a lot of photos with that same hue of light, inside and out. Is it from a particular type of bulb? Is is something that's done just for photo shoots? I'd love to be able to recreate that warmth.

I believe these are regular incandescent bulbs (pot lights) which are being phased out in our country -- though slowly there are coming better replacements.

We can't recall, but the photo may have been warmed some during editing in preparation for publishing to the web. But the lighting on this home does catch your eye in person - making it really impressive in the seaside community in which it stands.

Thanks for your interest!

The siding is Galvalume steel. Your local exterior cladding supplier should be able to advise you on whether they can supply you with that product, or one similar.

Thanks for your interest!

Door supplier - Can you tell who supplied this door? I'm looking for this exact door in Ottawa. And I assume it came prehung in the frame?
