Urban Contemporary Townhouse with Skylights


Created by interior designer Cecconi Simone for a community of residences in Toronto, Canada, this this model interior is based on the principle of healthy and sustainable interior environments. The model occupies the ground floor of a townhouse, a long and rather narrow rectangular space. The day area is organized lengthwise and occupies the whole left side of the rectangle. The open plan space is divided into cooking area, dining area and sitting area. As the space is very narrow and in order to ensure an easy circulation, all the functional and storage elements are placed on one wall. This wall is actually completely covered in cupboards, shelves and niches, floor to ceiling and side to side. In the cooking area, the wall has a niche with a white Corian worktop and counter backsplash. The worktop integrates the cooker, while the high modules include the hood, spice cabinets and storage. In front of the cooking niche there is a long kitchen island, in glossy black melamine that contrasts strongly with the glossy white of the storage wall. The counter-top of the island, in black engineered quartz opposes in its turn the white Corian of the niche, creating a classical white and black contrast game.


The third material present in the composition is walnut wood, both vertically and horizontally. The horizontal surface is the dining table that comes as a prolongation of the kitchen island, but lower in height. The vertical surfaces are actually walnut niches inserted here and there in the glossy white storage wall. The kitchen island and table are placed under a skylight that brings natural light from above.


Except from storage and niches, the wall also integrates a fireplace with a wood storage niche as well as a flat screen. The living room is set just in front, with a cozy white fabric sofa, old wood low tables and poufs.


Another skylight brings light into the ensuite bathroom, where we can find the same materials like in the day area: white Corian and walnut niches and furniture.
