Sheerwater Residence


Size: 14 000 sqft





A contemporary home overlooks Lake Okanagan on the outskirts of Kelowna.

Partially buried into the hill to reduce the massing and to fuse the building with the landscape, the house opens up to the view and the lake to the north, with a series of terraces, decks and gardens connecting the interior and exterior spaces. The house is sited

to maximize natural ventilation and to shield the interior spaces from the hot summer sun. The natural materials of stone, polished stucco, and Cedar blend with the seer landscape of the valley.

The 8 car parking garage is buried under the hill and the guest house perches below the entry court to minimize the impact on the landscape and views.
