Yakisugi House

Alloy Homes Incorporated as Architects

A phenomenal custom home whose every angle is designed to frame beautiful views to the downtown skyline. A 20' grade difference between the street and back alley led to some unique architectural solutions including a detached garage with tunnel and green roof. "Yakisugi" is a reference to the Japanese burnt wood siding in which the majority of the home is clad.


What was the brief?

Form and function were top of mind when we designed this custom home for a busy young family with a passion for modern architecture. The homeowners work at the nearby hospital and wanted to establish roots and raise their growing family within walking distance to schools and shopping. The home provides privacy for professionals working from home as well as a bright basement with home theatre for family fun. Amazing views out every window and a tunnel to the garage that doubles as an expansive mudroom add additional functionality to the home. The rooftop patio extends the living space and provides a peaceful and elegant retreat for gardening and entertaining.
