Windsor Residence

Altius Architecture, Inc. as Architects

This 3400 sq.ft. house located in Windsor, Ontario Canada, was deigned to accommodate a family’s need for wheelchair accessibility, while demarcating the spaces to form a distinction between public and private spaces. The house was designed with two wings to spatially separate the two programs and are joined by a bright entrance foyer and sunroom. The layout minimizes hallway circulation space, allowing rooms to blend into one another. The home celebrates a barrier free program with ceiling tracks for accessibility and a therapeutic pool for treatment. The overhangs of this home control heat gain in the summer while inviting sun to flood the sunroom in winter, bringing the outdoors in. The second floor incorporates a minimalist program with an office and an extra bedroom. However, this second storey lends itself to the overall design and assists in creating a smooth curvature in the roof line. The design of the roof provides the family with an opportunity for a roof garden and deck which overlooks the adjacent ravine beyond. This home is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2013.
