Recently, architect Omar Gandhi was featured in Architecture Daily for designing the Moore Studio.

The new home is built on a recently purchased piece of land amidst a dense forest in the small town of Hubbards, Nova Scotia, approximately 45 minutes south of the city of Halifax. The 1500 square foot house is designed to be left exceedingly raw, providing open spaces and allowing plenty of natural daylight to penetrate the interior. The objective was to provide a platform for their artistic aspirations to flourish once again, while also providing a quiet setting for the couple to enjoy the surrounding landscape with their dogs, free of the stress of the city.
