This project is in Vancouver, and is situated on a long city lot. Because of the length, we were able to carve a large light well to the rental suite below. Hovering above the suite's patio is a long reflecting pool which will be enjoyed from the floor above. The pool provides an obvious visual amenity, and privacy for the tenants below.
The house is in the RS-7 zone, which is very conservative in it's guidelines. Our approach was to take a familiar architectural form and wrap it with crisp modern detailing.
