Project Statement ::
This custom dwelling is a partial 2 storey situated on a 3.7 acre site in Strathcona County near Edmonton. The design takes advantage of the expansive site and southern exposure, while the existing heavily vegetated perimeter preserves privacy.
The house explores massing and transparency through careful modulation of the exterior façade while capturing unobstructed views. The "L" configured main floor volume houses the primary living areas, inlcuding the Main Entry, Study, Living Room, Kitchen, and Dining Room. The main floor is book-ended by the Garage and utility area to the west and a Guest Suite extending south to form a south facing courtyard.
The sleeping wing on the second level, accessed via a glass walled stairwell is a rectangular volume oriented east-west over the north portion of the main floor. A roof terrace overlooking the courtyard is accessed via a common landing area at the top of the stairs.
