Toward the Shore

Residential architecture must always have a connection with its landscape: physically and visually.

The previous home, despite being located on a beautiful site, was derelict and not fit for purpose anymore. There was little connection to the water and beach, thus not taking advantage of its waterfront location.

A true connection to the water was achieved through adaptable glazing covering the majority of the rear facade and a roof line that is set outwards. Furthermore, the protruding massing orients and aligns itself toward the waterfront, bringing the interior spaces and beach together. Despite the small plot, two accessory dwelling units were erected on the east end of the plot, providing additional affordable housing near the city centre. 3D models and plans helped the clients and myself come to design decisions in the context of the site before the demolition of their previous home. The residence has won multiple awards including a first place in the “Residential Infill “ category from the Canadian Homebuilders Association.
