Nanton Residence designed by BLA Design Group is a modern brick home located in Vancouver, Canada. From the exterior, the house is heavy and robust, with three floors rise fully above the ground facing the rear yard. While window wells and a large sunken patio bring light deep into the other half of the open floor plan. The roof form is clearly outlined by stepping terraces, positioned to provide an extension of the interior spaces and to take full advantage of the view.

The house has two entrances: one from each street frontage and one accessed from the high side of the site and is accessed across a long steel bridge that floats above a sunken patio. Also, in contrast to the monolithic and heavy presence of the home’s exterior, the interior spaces feel light and flowing. Lightwells bring sunlight deep into the house and provide functional patio space directly connected to main living functions. In addition to this, living spaces such as living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom showcases the sophisticated design and bring the endless amenities for the owner. Indeed, the main living functions spill into each other, creates spacious areas that don’t feel unnecessarily compartmentalized.

Indeed, the house is an example of a unique local residence that fully embraces the characteristics of the sloping, corner site condition. It is an impressive example of modern residential architecture which utilizes its location, orientation, and site topography as key design drivers. Surely, this home will be a longstanding home that will meet the family’s needs for years to come.

The clients’ need for a highly durable façade led to a selection of brick that wraps the entire home. This brick provides a beautifully textured backdrop that catches the varying conditions of Vancouver’s unique weather and light.

The Nanton Residence Gallery:

Text by the Architects: The Nanton Residence is a modern brick home located in Vancouver, Canada. Designed for a large multi-generational family, this residence makes a bold statement from its position on a highly visible corner lot next to Vancouver’s Arbutus Greenway. Also, the house is a collaborative project between Wiedemann Architectural and an emerging studio, BLA Design Group. The practice of BLA Design Group is built around an approach to architecture in which each project is led by the unique conditions of both the local and site-specific context, as well as the idiosyncratic needs of each client. Indeed, the Nanton residence embodies these objectives as it comprises a series of large terraces which integrate into a long sloping site and feature sweeping views westward over Vancouver.
