Tread Lightly

Back to Portfolio

This steep property required a specific 400 square foot foundation which could have been viewed as restrictive. This challenge was effectively met by designing 3 floors of open and airy liveability.

The south facing glass and steel staircase floats through the tall window, letting in light and giving this small dwelling a large personality. A Maple tree from the property was milled and used on the stairs, and our talented boat building clients sealed and filled the treads themselves.

The main living area on the third floor boasts a kitchen garden and a stunning view of the landscapes beyond. Due to the unique layout, a pellet stove on the first floor is able to heat almost all of the home.
