Name: Moore Studio
Designer: Omar Gandhi Architect
Location: Nova Scotia, Canada
Moore Studio is a minimalist home located in Nova Scotia, Canada, designed by Omar Gandhi Architect. The clients are new empty-nesters with two dogs and a passion for the arts. Both had been full time artists before finding other work to support their families. The new home would be built on a recently purchased piece of land amidst a dense forest in Hubbard’s, Nova Scotia. Hubbards is approx. 45 minutes south of Halifax.
The new 1500 sq.ft house was to be designed to be extremely raw, open spaces and lots of natural daylight. The aim of the new home would be to provide a platform for living in a quiet setting, free of the stress of the city and an environment for their dogs and artistic ambitions. The project is based on the idea metamorphosis. The baseline form of the house began as a simple and elegant gable with a 12:12 roof pitch.
