About this project

This modest single family house is sited on a lovely location that backs onto a conservation area surrounding the Beaver River. Planned to be efficient and compact, yet offer varied spaces for a family of 4, the house includes gathering spaces as well as intimate nooks for reading and working. At slightly under 2200 square feet, the 2-storey house still includes a generous master suite, 2 bedrooms, and an office space.

The clients desire for a healthy building has lead to an investigation into building products such as American Clay. The project seeks a delicate balance of efficiency, health, and cost-effectiveness, while becoming a unique reflection of modern family living.
