Squamish, BC


This home is in a new neighbourhood that is sensitive to sustainable and affordable design. The home is modern while employing best practices to have a low impact on the environment. It is a three-storey home with a small footprint. The windows are energy efficient and carefully located so as to provide ample natural light year-round. Air-flow and summer temperature is managed though window openings.


Construction is standard wood-frame, a renewable resource and many other features of the interior finishing are conscientious of “green” construction. This home has large open spaces and carefully placed windows.  The result is a main living floor that feels integrated with the forest, while carefully obscuring other homes in the high-density neighbourhood.
