EWASECHKO RESIDENCE EXPANSION

Medicine Hat, Alberta

A modern addition to traditional vernacular presents a unique aesthetic; the synergy of two architectural styles. The residence of Dr. Kirk Ewasechko transitions from a familiar form to a contrasting modern one reflected in the use of glazing and simple lines. This well-loved style afforded a dynamic expansion to an already beautiful home.

The first level includes office/studio space off the corridor servicing the garage, vestibule, and stairwell. The second level features a bedroom and ensuite, connected to the large roof deck environment. The basement is utilized for the mechanical, and a humidity-controlled wine cellar. 

The application of green technology is employed in the solar heating system on the roof. Water is heated for domestic use by a series of routing pipes. This simple and low-tech solution has caught on worldwide, reducing energy costs for homeowners.

The natural beauty of the riverfront property can be fully appreciated by engaging the moveable wall systems on the upper deck. The addition opens onto the back yard and garden, overlooking the treelined South Saskatchewan River. This interface allows the growing Ewasechko family with many meaningful interactions in a relaxed and serene environment.
