The project incorporates passive solar design principals to catch northern light while ensuring it doesn’t get too hot in summer. With a client that was open to finding the best sustainable solutions tailored to her project, we sought to ensure the design did everything it could to positively impact the environment and neighbourhood. The period house was transformed into a comfortable; light filled home that is fit for purpose while flexible with great connection to outdoor spaces.
