The Britannia Residence sits atop the east bank of the Elbow River in southeast Calgary, Alberta. Architecturally, the residence challenges traditional planning typologies of private and open spaces within a single family dwelling.

The notion of a front ‘porch’ was re-interpreted in a contemporary setting to take full advantage of western light and views while providing the single loaded open areas access to exterior living and dining spaces in both front and rear yards. Private areas were then placed on an opposing axis to allow for uninterrupted natural sunlight and provide privileged access to the rear yard.
