In the cold winter climate of Edmonton, Canada, this single family residence captures the southern sun by extending above the tall evergreens to bring warmth and energy to the interior spaces below.

The design orients its openings to the south and east, maximizing light and warmth while the central spine’s clerestory window bounces balancing sunlight off its western wall, simulating a west opening.
