Calgary residence spells out modern living.
A-House-A is located in new subdivision in Calgary on city lot, on a landscape of rolling hills and valleys. The house is comprised of three architectural components; an 'A' frame glass structure in front, a 'Cube' in the middle, and an open 'A' frame structure over the rear patio.
The nature of Calgary's climate challenged the architect to design "real living" space that can be enjoyed throughout the year. The front of the house was designed to create a pleasant, invitational living / entertainment area with views of existing natural beauty while creating a sense of connection with neighbours.
The 'house-cube' is organised for day and night activities, with the living room and master bedroom extending into terrace / patio visually.
Th 'A' frame over the patio is partially covered by fabric to protect it from the elements, an abundance of surrounding aspen trees provides a feeling of privacy and a sense that one is truly in harmony with nature.
