craftsman styled home with charles rennie influence

craftsman style home

description

The design idiom for this house is influenced from the style created and promoted by Charles Rennie as requested by the owners. Using small repetitive elements such as the three adjacent windows the design evolved into a craftsman styled home with unique touches by the owners.


The house is delightful in character and much of this is due to the creative input from the owners themselves. Copper handrails (made from plumbing pipe!), large wood brackets, contemporary metal art fireplace surround with offset mantle all make interesting visuals.


The house is located in a rural area of south east Kelowna and enjoys great views of the Okanagan Lake. A generous covered patio with outdoor heaters allows use for extended periods in the fringe months before winter and early spring. The stonework around the outdoor fireplace was personally selected and chosen by the owner from the property. A traditional styled home with craftsman flavour.



Recipient of the 2011 GOLD Tommie award by the Canadian Home Builder's Association for best home $750k - $1m category.
