Centro Towers, the Skyhome Expression, designed by Hotson Bakker Architect. Located in Richmond, BC, Kanada.

The skyhome expression includes multi-foor space applied to a vertically stacked form and is organized with the lowest (soft) wood edge at the base, an intermediate darker band and a light metal and glass expression at the top. This division creates a dialogue with the tower facade treatment. (more…)

Private Residence in Kanada, Beautiful Home designed by Hotson Bakker Architect. The design approach to address old and new was to break the two with a transpar-ent ‘joint’ or ‘knuckle’ – the outcome is the “grand window.” Programmatically, the new staircase became the ideal location for this transition, where the homeowners can glimpse this relationship from the inside as they ascend to the second ?oor. The open space concept is further supported by the glass ?oor, which both shares light and emphasizes contrast between the more traditionally partitioned portion of the existing home. Bright colours and the homeowner’s artwork helped accentuate the materials and lighting.
