Creating A Space With Purpose
Ottawa Builder Combines Contemporary Home Design With Traditional Purpose
South of the village of Manotick, Minto’s new development, Mahogany, captures the village atmosphere but injects a more contemporary home design with clean architectural lines. The community construction started about a year-and-a-half ago and includes on-site family amenities such as two parks.
The Poplar model is just over 4,000 sq. ft. and is the largest home available in the development. It’s modelled after a French country home.
One aim of the contemporary home's design was to appeal to the growing trend that sees homebuyers seeking “space with purpose.” While homeowners still value wide-open spaces and flowing floor plans, there is a return to a slightly more formal space.
Utilizing natural light and its relationship with the décor create a sense of openness and space, even within walled rooms. Designer Donna Correy of the KISS Design Group, who styled the Poplar, was cognizant of light. She sought to redirect it throughout the home with specific décor choices.
