residential architecture


The rectangle design team recently worked on a proposal for a progressive home on a N.W. urban lot. The idea was to maximize the natural light into the home and still comply with all the city of Calgary side set back requirements. The home is fairly large by inner city standards, but every portion of the house will be used. Its not a big house filled with bonus rooms and multiple dining areas! With any luck, we will see the built version of this house in neighbourhood near you soon.

    Fantastic design. Love the small interior courtyard with greenery and the covered back patio with the onlooking windows!! Would love this house!

  2. Thank you for your kind words. We really tried to maxaimize the natural light to this urban home, while still keeping in line with all bylaws. Find a piece of land Tracy, and we would love to build you a house like this…

    Very nice and flexible layout, I love the light open spaces. Is there potential for green roof technology? What is the lot requirement? My old, cramped 1926 inner city home rests on a standard 50 x 120′ lot with front driveway access … I dare to dream!

  4. Thank you for your comment Bill! There certainly would be potential for a green roof and a 50′ lot would be perfect! Sorry for the delayed reply….
