2014 – current. residential addition and renovation. 130 square metres Windermere Valley, BC
Major addition to and renovation of an existing home in Windermere.
This project adds an exceptional and complementary semi-detached suite and additional garage space onto an existing walk-out bungalow in order to make great use of a spectacular site. Our clients needed to add a suite to their home to allow for an elderly family member to live and age nearby, yet independently and in an enjoyable space. The existing home crowns a spectacular ridge with views across Lake Windermere and up and down the spectacular Columbia Valley. Our approach to the project is to contrast the addition with the existing, while complementing its low slung massing viewed from the approach by road. The addition adds to the utility space of the home, provides for a separate suite with its own strong site connections and daylighting, and allows a logical and respectful connection between the two residences.
