We're so excited to see this new house project completed in Nanaimo, BC! This modern spec home sold already half way through construction. There will be two more to come on the subdivided lot.
We created lofty spaces to capture the beautiful views of the Marina. The house is designed with simplicity and flexibility in mind. The bottom floor converts into a secondary suite with separate entrance for those who need a mortgage helper, or it can easily become a studio or office for the growing population of creative professionals that work from home.
From the outside the house exhibits a professional, clean look, with simple lines and low-maintenance materials. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor for those who prefer a one-level living style. There is also a master suite on the top level with direct access to a luxurious rooftop patio!
The whole house is designed and sited using passive solar principles. South facing clerestory windows provide lots of natural light into the living spaces. The South facing rooftop patio is a great space to suntan or grow some vegetables! The overhangs are sized so that the home will not overheat in the summer, preserving a comfortable feel in the interior year round.
The whole package provides appeal and adaptability to wide audience, whether they be starting a family, looking to downsize, run a home business, or just live in simple clean style!
