Forest View Residence
Residence Framed by Artistic Windows & Doors
On a street carved out of dense woods, homes of distinction are slowly taking shape near Lake Simcoe. The Forest View Residence is a 3200 sqft., 3 bedroom modern home that focuses on views of nature through its contemporary window & doors while blending clean lines with traditional materials.
Our past homes, were more along traditional lines. This time around we were seeking a modern design with great flow and visual openness that didn’t sacrifice function.
“We were seeking a warm inviting feel with lots of wood, stone, natural fibres, and glass. The main goal was to find a designer who would take the time to understand our vision and help bring it to life.”
Madison Taylor’s architectural team designs a home from the inside out. “We start with Form and Function. The key is to identify the most important spaces in the eyes of the homeowners and work from there; we evolve the design around how the homeowner wants to live.” Madison Taylor recognizes that large window and doors draw in nature’s beauty while providing a sense of comfort with natural light and expansive views.
The featured windows and doors are manufactured and installed by Big Glass Openings, in Barrie, Ontario. The products utilize profiles from Reynaers Aluminium, which are designed in Europe. When paired with quality glass these products are tremendously energy efficient and maintenance free.
“Working with Big Glass Openings is always a pleasure. They feature beautiful products that go way beyond what normal window manufacturers provide. Their expansive showrooms with a wide range of displays enhances the customer experience. An established partnership with Big Glass Openings, who features Reynaers Aluminium, means I can offer clients a lot more options.” Says Madison Taylor.
