Capturing Views From Every Room: FAD Residence

FAD Residence Capturing Views From Every Room: FAD Residence

FAD Residence was designed by Okanagan Valley-based full service interior design firm FAD Design Group. Capturing views of the nearby lake from every room, the imposing residence rests on a 2.47 acre property. The Canadian design studio created a residence that blurs the lines between inside and outside by using several visual elements. Concrete floors laid throughout the main living areas, outside decks, wrap around balconies and patios create a seamless space, enhanced by the bright and open spaces, with 20ft. ceilings on the main floor. Retractable glass walls on both  the first and second level create a strong connection to the outdoors, while the master bedroom feels like an oasis of comfort. Three additional bedrooms and 4 bathrooms welcome guests, while the sustainable features ensure a cozy atmosphere with respect for the surroundings. An oversized 2 car garage with radiant floor heating and 3 vehicle carport awaits guests.

All the rooms in the house display a beautiful selection of furniture and furnishings, alongside design elements – custom designed frameless glass kitchen, hardwood floors in the lofted office space and a heated salt water concrete lap pool. The other amenities keep the inhabitants on a high comfort level – gym, wine cellar, home theater and a wet bar help relax and entertain. The architect’s words should best describe the inspiration: “It was quite simply to create a strong geometric form that thrust itself out of the hillside made from concrete, glass and accented with some black stone. The natural surroundings around the home was the perfect setting to create a juxtaposition. Kinda like a diamond in the rough and beauty through imperfection. This concept was the driving force behind the choice of materials we used. Finally the view is spectacular and it was important to capture it from every room in the home and that we did.
