2014 – current. residential, new construction. 268 square metres Beauvais Lake/Castle River area, AB
A new home located on a large land-holding outside the north edge of Beauvais Provincial Park.
This project will see a new family home added to one of the most spectacular and powerful sites imaginable. After camping for several years on a large tract of foothills land located in the heart of Southern Alberta’s ranch country, our clients are working towards building their family’s home there. The site presents incredible vistas north to the Porcupine Hills, west to the Livingston Range and the Crowsnest, and southwest into the heart of the Castle Wilderness while still feeling nestled between local hills. Challenges include the extreme Chinook winds that funnel through the flat site, both wooded and pastured high above the Castle River. The home is intended to be a careful response and connection to the distinct ecosystems found there while providing a base for this incredibly active, outdoors-oriented family.
