Hillside House —Dramatic Views in Vernon, BC

This 3400 square foot house is perched on a strikingly hillside site of prairie grasses and Ponderosa pine trees. Capturing various views and embracing grade challenges, the building features facades and interior spaces that respond to specific site features.  Several terraces and decks provide outdoor living spaces to suit all conditions and opportunities: from sunsets, to dining, to a full shade terrace next to a cooling water feature.  A dramatic timber entry trellis extends the two converging axes of the floor plan.
