A deftly designed insertion into a mature neighborhood, Old Strathcona Residence is both modern and charming. A study in contrasts, the interior material palette of heated concrete floors, wood clad ceilings and stairs creates a sense of purposeful character. The exteriors provide similar contrasts with the expression dominated by south facing solar panels. A garage suite of similar language compliments the main residence, giving the property additional space and taking full advantage of ravine views.
