OUT OF CITY HOME - PASSIVE
PASSIVE HOUSE RESIDENCE + LUXURY SHED
We're genuinely amazed at how many beautiful sites we get to work with, and how fortunate we are to be allowed to create a building with such surroundings. The hardest decision on a site such as this is trying to decide where on the 5 acre south facing site to put the home. Pushing the building to the north made sense as views where limited to the north and the large bank of trees to the north provided good shelter from the north winter winds. Passive design begins with correct site placement after all.
The clients, with their young family will be slowly making the transition to moving into the house full time, so the house will be built with a luxury shed, outfitted with washroom and large custom swing doors. This will allow them to live in their trailer, being sheltered from the elements and affording them incredible views of their site and the surrounding mountains.
Work is currently underway, with a phased completion thru to 2020.
