Description:

“The Rough House is located in the city’s Kitsilano neighbourhood. Encompassing 3,600 square feet (334 square metres), the residence consists of the main home and a laneway house – a small, detached dwelling that occupies the rear of a property and faces an alley.

Fundamental to the success of this project is the separation of the home from its neighbours in a tight urban condition, through the narrowing of building to support increased side-yard landscape edges and exterior light-well circulation.”
