Sustainability is one great factor that not only the designer considers but also the client as well. The designer believes that sustainability contributes not just on the financial aspects of the homeowner but also the idea of providing the best features that will incorporate the nature’s beauty on it. Today we will share to you a house design that covers the sustainable features and the beauty of the nature as well. The house is specifically located in the Osoyoos, British Columbia, Canada.

This is a single-family residence which was designed to suit the homeowner’s recreational style amid the natural setting of the Okanagan region. The house is set on a narrow lot limited by setbacks to a 30’ by 50’ area. As we can see here the house building incorporates a minimal opening on the west side and is mostly transparent on the east that may take the full advantage of the light bouncing off the lake. Let us see more of the amazing ideas of the designer to incorporate the sustainable features of the house through the images below.
