Strathcona I

The client program for this project required a modern two storey, low energy use house with open plan main floor, three bedrooms, study, play area, and balcony on the second, and a three bay attached garage, to be built on a modest budget. The resulting design accomplishes all this using a 12" double stud R-40 wall system, an R-70 roof, triple glazed Low-E windows, heat recovery ventilator, and boiler heated concrete floors at all three levels. The main floor concrete will act as a heat sink to store solar heat penetrating the rear windows in winter. The exterior will be acrylic stucco and pre-coloured steel siding.
