Oak Bay Residence

Victoria BC
Completed 2015

This new custom residence was designed for an active couple with interests in photography and gardening. The one level layout features a great room with kitchen, living and dining overlooking a private rear garden and garry oaks. The westcoast contemporary design features cable-tied douglas fir trusses and ceiling finish, wood windows and cedar siding. Windows are configured to bring natural light movement into the house from sunrise to sunset. A small private courtyard is located along one side providing light and intimate views from the entry hall, photo studio and ensuite bathroom. The low slope roof is expressed as a vaulted ceiling in all the major rooms. A garage in the rear of the narrow mid-block site is accessed via a turfstone driveway planted with clover.
