“My design was informed by a desire to maximize the potential within the limitations of a narrow, steep lot surrounded by smaller homes. The resulting design effectively addressed these issues while achieving the owners’ goals, large and small.”

Tucked away in the idyllic town of Summerland, this three-story home was designed to exhibit a balance of form and function. The home conveys the relaxed ambience and beauty of a seaside cottage without sacrificing modern conveniences and amenities. With an abundance of natural light and ocean views throughout, heavy wood beams, arched topped French doors that open to a south facing deck, this cottage-style home appeals to those who enjoy the finer things in life without pretense.
