This project, currently in schematic design for a site in Kits Point in Vancouver, is a duplex split horizontally with one unit at ground level and the second above. The two units are very contemporary in design, have abundant daylight, are generous while efficient in layout and are low in energy consumption.
The lower level unit has a fully glazed wall that opens the living space completely onto the garden and two bedrooms with balconies on the lane side. The upper level unit has a similar open plan layout but features a rooftop patio for primary outdoor space.
Exterior sunshades reduce solar heat gain in the summer while well-insulated and air tight walls are part of a comprehensive approach to energy efficiency and comfort.
