Project Description

Walton Residence

The clients program called for a contemporary, open plan house on an exposed south facing site in Esquimalt Harbour.  The view is superb, but climatic conditions are extreme, with full sunlight and cold winds off the Strait.  The house was designed with extensive glazing using curtain wall construction, and with outdoor living areas to the rear, protected by the house.  Aluminum window shades were incorporated into the design, with all exterior finishes designed to withstand the salt spray.
