Wallace Street House

Campos Studio as Designers

The project is located in a suburban area of Vancouver with single-family homes on larger lots and is next to seven square kilometers of park that borders The University of British Columbia. We were able to keep the area and footprint of the house to less than the allowable. This was not only a strategy to reduce the environmental footprint of the house but also a conscious decision to leave as much garden as possible. This project is for a family with four young children. In the planning we developed scenario planning strategies so that the building would accommodate the changing needs of the family. The project respects two mature trees, these trees provide context and heritage to the neighbourhood. Carefully analyzing the site allowed us to propose passive design strategies to increase energy efficiency, comfort and habitability.
