It’s hard to compete with a view. So when the team at Reena Sotropa In House Design Group were tasked with the interior design of a Calgary home extension featuring floor-to-ceiling, west-facing windows, they strove to complement the vistas on the other side of the glass by showcasing natural materials throughout the space.

A reclaimed barn door—salvaged by the antique-collecting homeowners—was installed as a partition, while wood, concrete, wool and leather made up the materials palette for the furniture. Despite the soaring ceiling and sweeping views, the warm, natural materials keep the seating area grounded and intimate: a cozy oasis from which to gaze out over the great Alberta plains.
