A certified Passive House project with split levels that grants this custom home the character and personality that a traditional home can never attain, this allows staggered and shaped rooms that generate open concept spaces. All principal rooms face south with large overhangs as sun protection, optimizing to site the specific Vancouver climate data. 

As soon as you enter you see beautiful stair treads on a steel structure with clear glass handrails, creating a slick and posh space that incorporates the love for contemporary styles, leading you to either an upward level where you can find the family room and bedrooms, or going downward toward a basement area.

Stunning light ingress is possible due to the Passive House certified windows and doors that were created with the finest craftsmanship and imported from Austria.
