Intergenerational Family Home

2012 Built Green Most Innovative Home Award Winner

This energy efficient house design is inspired by the belief that multiple generations within a family can harmoniously coexist and interact with each other. The three storey main house is designed as a home for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. The spacious lower residence is to be occupied by the grandparents. A small laneway home is designed for future occupancy by the children and may currently provide affordable rental accommodations to extended family members or friends.

The residence embodies passive sustainable design and stresses energy efficiency, and is at present in the process of attaining its LEED® rating.
