Cascada

1/10

CUSTOM HOME | REVELSTOKE, BC

ARCHITECT | STARK ARCHITECTURE

A natural home with energy-saving solutions influenced by its surroundings.

Bruce Lee once said, “Be like water”. Allowing form to follow function, the design for Cascada followed the form of water flowing down a slope. This sprawling effect can be seen with the cascade of floors and moving spaces, which simplifies the engineering and creates a home with wonderful cadence and rhythm.

 

The focus for the project was to embrace natural finishes throughout, and to bring in light. The large format passive-certified window walls we were able to allow for significant illumination, which doubled as a heat source in the winter months. Capitalizing on large overhangs to double as shading elements in the summer, the owners were able to enjoy a private valley view in their covered patio space. The careful orientation of windows for views and privacy allowed a natural conversation from façade to architecture.
