The terms rustic, minimal and modern don't often coincide. This beautiful home in Gatineau Hills, Quebec, designed by Canadian architect Christopher Simmonds finds a balance between modern minimal and natural rustic using rustic reclaimed wood details juxtaposed with sleek white steel and glass. The wood adds a sense of warmth and history, and also makes the place blend more easily with its surrounding natural environment in the Canadian countryside. A perfect modern country retreat - complete with swimming pool.
