5079 conveys a clean, minimalist concept while embracing the simplicity of block forms in an innovative fashion. Strong geometric shapes, clean lines and form following function, come together simultaneously to create a distinctive feel of contemporary design.

The 2,800 square foot residence is a 2-story, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath with a generous back patio and plaza.

The front facade makes a strong statement with its pure and simple geometric forms, while the rear facade contains leaner & horizontal forms to create function.

The rear porch is flanked by two wings walls that enhance and elongate the structure while also providing privacy and sun control.

The exterior glass wall of windows and doors brings the outdoors inside. An enclosure band across the double height patio is designed as sun control for the façade. In addition to the treatment of the south-facing orientation, a white, vinyl roof and white exterior colour further contribute to the overall cooling efficiency. The corrugated metal fence was introduced as a distinct design element which acts as a “frame” around the house.
