Omar Gandhi Architect's Purcells Cove House is located in the heart of the Halifax suburb in Nova Scotia, Canada. Close to open water and surrounded by a rural landscape, this residence consists of layered, rectangular volumes that also double as its three spacious levels.

While this Purcells Cove House features a minimalist and modern exterior, its interior design is more rustic in its overall approach. The opposite of ornate, the home's interior combines walnut plywood accents with clean white walls. The walls are mostly left bare with the exception of art work that adorns walls throughout.

The result is a cozy and functional family home that is simultaneously elegant and urban when compared to its surrounding homes -- residences that embody a more traditional countryside feel.
