U of A Semi-Detached

Designed to replace an old house in an RF3 area. This house was planned for an owner who will live in the private, south-facing rear part, but also wishes to provide a bright and comfortable separate suite for students at the front. Out of consideration for the neighbourhood, it appears to be a single house, in scale with the existing avenue, but adds clean, contemporary design using a high quality acrylic exterior and metal clad windows. Geothermal heating serves both dwellings, and triple glazing reduces the heat loss and maximizes natural lighting.


Occupancy was spring 2008.
