Keith Road Duplex
975-977 Keith Road, West Vancouver, B.C.
The triangular corner lot is located on a steeply sloping hillside site in the Ambleside neighborhood of West Vancouver. The 3 bedroom homes are 2,680 SF and 2,400 SF respectively, and the east unit has an integrated but separate basement rental suite. The modern design incorporates strong horizontal lines, premium vinyl windows and smooth finish façade treatments. There are expansive south-facing windows and balconies to maximize views towards the ocean and limited north-facing windows to provide privacy from the roadway that is higher than the building on the uphill side. Generous cross-ventilation, large sun-shading overhangs and canopies and heat-recovery mechanical systems all respond to local ecology and sustainable initiatives.
