On the south shore of Nova Scotia adjacent to Kingsburg Beach, the Treow Brycg residence was recently completed by Omar Gandhi Architect on a plot of land surrounded by tall grasses, visiting deer, and salty sea breezes. The dark structure appears fortress-like with a slanted roof that helps protect the residence from the harsh Nova Scotian weather. A ground-level terrace features a plunge pool extended out front before it cuts through the house as an internal breezeway reaching the backyard. Also on that level is a garage and guest suite each on either side of the opening. Upstairs, the tall, slanted ceilings make the space feel large with the windows on the back wall. A combination of light and dark woods and brass fixtures were used for a cozy, warm feel.
