Sensitive to its context, this house and its twin are in dialogue with the original bungalows on this quiet street in Sunset Heights just off the thriving commercial farmers market district of Airline Drive where neighbors, foodies and the city’s restaurateurs stock up on various fresh produce, seeds and spices year round.
These modern gabled houses for a double lot project were commissioned by a savvy developer client who believes good design is part of the equation. This two-story hybrid between a townhouse and a custom house exemplifies efficiently programmed living spaces, complementary outdoor balconies, clean lines and sensible material selections for the exterior and interior.
The plan includes an open concept kitchen-dining-living space with a patio and small green space; the upper floor includes a flex space, two bedrooms, a master suite and balconies overlooking the street and yard.
