Canada-Private Residence - Kamloops

   Kamloops, BC
400 square metre

This 400 square metre house in the British Columbia interior is on a steeply sloping hillside with a panoramic view of the rugged Thompson Valley.  The house descends down the slope on three levels, with the plan organized in a gentle curve to open the living spaces to the view yet afford privacy to the occupants. A simple, one story entry court presents a calm and serene welcome and helps to lower the visual mass of the three story wood frame structure.  The courtyard leads to an entry foyer over looking the two-story living room, where a broad glazed wall reveals a sweeping vista of the creek valley and distant city below.
