Modern Breezy Wooden Residences

Malcolm Davis Architecture's Wooden Houses are Airy and Bright

— June 19, 2013 — Art & Design
Malcolm Davis Architecture has created some absolutely stunning wooden residences that bring a cottage-like feel back into everyday living.

Each house built by Malcolm Davis is a quaint, single family home made entirely of different woods. This creates a naturalistic atmosphere, which, combined with an open concept design and floor-to-ceiling windows, channels a breezy and carefree attitude.

Malcolm Davis's rooms are each designed with the utmost care and precision, ensuring that nothing seems awkward or out of place. One room that is absolutely breathtaking is a library, filled with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a minimalist rod iron staircase creeping across the bookshelves, allowing homeowners to search for books easily and efficiently. The dark wood of the bookshelves nicely complements the lighter wood of the walls, proving that different materials can be combined to create a cohesive and fluid design.

With these houses, it's clear that cottage-style residences are becoming more mainstream. Homeowners looking to relax without having to drive out to cottage country can now rest at ease in a house that looks every bit the beautiful, lakeside cottage.
