Dunbar Residence, Canada

The architecture of the Dunbar Residence pays homage to estate homes seen in the Vancouver historical Shaughnessy area. The dark coloured trims, brackets and oversized wood windows contrast the warms toned stucco and locally sourced granite. Substantial overhangs, large-scaled brackets and columns are key architectural features of this home.

The design takes advantage of multiple exposures of this corner property, offers light and shade gardens, multiple outdoor zones, including an ample outdoor space with a covered porch. The layered landscape creates various garden areas, taking advantage of the grade changes of the property.

Outfitted with all the essentials, the outdoor kitchen located immediately outside of the prep kitchen takes the entire length of the rear patio perfect for large outdoor gatherings. Under the covered porch, a large TV with a surround sound system is set up for summer movie nights with ample seating and overhead infrared space heaters. A hot tub and a gas fire pit is located adjacent to the seating area, perfect for the cooler nights and extend the outdoor season. Bi-folding doors are strategically placed immediately by the great room/kitchen/eating area for indoor-outdoor access to the covered porch.

Layered planting areas create visual interest and provide the client vegetable planting area to take full advantage of the western exposure. The retaining walls absorb the afternoon sun and act as a heat reservoir to prolong the planting season. The large lawn area is planned to visually break the hard surface of the patio and rest the eyes. The flat grassed ground is also a perfect space for the children to gather and play. The curved shade draws centre lines of both the north-south and east-west axes, creating symmetry in design.
