Calgary, Albert, Canada –
This 11,000 sf residence tops an expansive site in the Calgary countryside. The conceptual approach was to take advantage of the views by generating the “L” configuration of the main house. The guest villa completes this configuration to form a courtyard. While kitchen and support areas front onto this more private entry courtyard, the generous living spaces and upper level bedrooms enjoy the views to the south. The house was styled in the manner of C.F.A Voysey, turn of the century master architect of the English countryside manor. A play of levels and axial relationships influenced planning of the site.
