Squamish Development Study

Location Squamish BC
Size 18,000 sq ft

The Squamish Development Study is a residential project with a total of 20 units split into 4 levels. It sets out to explore the evolution of townhouse developments by studying the formal approach of three main buildings forming a community lane.

Using a modular system, the project analyzes compact living within the boundaries of a tight land assembly otherwise assumed for a detached house typology. As such, the units within deliver a complete household program per townhouse as they stack their interior layout which provides ample terracing and promotes community living within the mews corridor. All units have two bedrooms, a designated home office, and a bonus room, as well as a large balcony to each room and a patio at garden level. A rooftop lounge crowns the units with expansive views to the mountain systems of the area.

Construction systems include concrete foundation and slab on grade, timber frame and non combustible cladding throughout.

This project aims at being compliant with Step 4 of British Columbia Building Code.
