British Columbia is unquestionably an area in Canada where homes with appealing designs are and the contemporary home, Chilliwack, is one of the homes with appealing designs located in the area.
Created by Randy Bens Architect in 2011, this contemporary home was built for a family that had outgrown their split level home.
Initially, the project was just about adding a new floor to an existing 1950's split level home but it turned out the existing house had to be removed due to unforeseen conditions. As a result, the house's construction is all new whereas the design retains some hints of the old.
As the existing house was considered too small for the family, a new floor was added and the floor contained a master bedroom, office, desk, and en-suite. The new upper floor of the house cantilevers in two directions and it complements the original or the lower cantilevered portion of the contemporary home.
Located in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada, Chilliwack has a lot of interesting things that make it appealing and the followings are some of them.
As one of the homes with appealing designs in British Columbia, Chilliwack has a number of interesting things including, for starter, clear stained cedar siding used on all surfaces which can soften the strong geometry of this contemporary home.
The siding is also used on the surfaces to give composition scale and warmth. In this contemporary home, we can also find three ceiling heights that are used throughout the house and function to create a sense of openness.
In this contemporary home, the window placement is done carefully and this careful window placement is what allows the home's walls to be washed with light.
Another thing that makes this contemporary home appealing is how it has simple, yet quite elegant interior material palette as white walls, bluestone floors, and rift cut oak cabinetry are included in the houseâ€™s interior and naturally, they help a lot in making the interior of the house appear elegantly appealing.
