The Furber Residence by Omar Gandhi Architect is situated delicately along a narrow piece of land between a tree-lined country road and a dramatic ocean-side cliff that overlooks the Gulf of St Lawrence.
The project reflects the studios’s vision related to the landscape context: “The land is the essential element and has a story of its own. Long before we discuss interior design, we discuss the landscape and how architecture could enhance it. If the land needs to be cleared, we discuss how we can save or restore its natural beauty. If there is an interesting natural element, like an outcrop, we confer about incorporating it into our plans. We learn where the sun rises and sets in relation to our vision.”
