This contemporary house design features spacious and calming living spaces. Designed by Canadian architect Christopher Simmonds, the Zen Barn is a modern home located in Ottawa, Canada. The large modern house offers 3,100 square meters.

Modern exterior design ideas include white oak external cladding and floor-to-ceiling windows, which create a bright interior design opened to the outdoors. The contemporary house has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a large living room area, and a modern kitchen.

A staircase design in industrial style with metallic and wooden parts connects living spaces and allows natural air circulation. Modern interior design ideas and neutral colors create Zen home interiors. Calming and relaxing neutral colors, like beige, white and gray, look comfortable and tranquil with light and dark brown colors.
