CALGARY, AB

This residence was designed for a young urban family with an expressed desire to capitalize on light, to respect the historic forms along their street, and yet to embrace a modern sensibility in both formal aesthetic and spatial sensibilities.

The wide lot allowed for an entry, living room, dining area, kitchen and den all to be strung together in a continuous u-shaped form surrounding a central patio. The resulting formal and plan strategies are both clearly contemporary and comfortably familiar.
