BLUE DOOR HOUSE
Location: Saskatoon, SK
Situated in an established neighbourhood surrounded by traditional housing forms, the Blue Door House appears as a silouhette of the house next door. Clad in black corrugated steel with a gabled roof form, the house is a nod to vernacular forms interpreted for contemporary use.
Interior construction uses large glulam beams, doubled joists and tongue & groove floors. Radiantly heated concrete floors is set against the warmth of the wood and a plaster-finish fireplace is the focal point of the open concept main floor. The upper floor is fully vaulted with a staggered window pattern to let in a diffuse light.
