Westmount III

A new house to be built on a 50 foot lot, the design began with a south facing outdoor deck off the dining area, and privacy from the street afforded by the projection of the living room past it.
The wide south side yard allows large windows and solar heat gain in winter, which will be stored in the 2 inch concrete floors. The impact of the two storey volume is reduced by varying and offsetting the spaces from front to rear, and from ground to roof. This also brings much more light, from varying angles, into the centre of the house. Cedar siding on the front and cedar rafter and soffit details compliment the smooth acrylic walls.
