Kelowna Architect: Residential Style Solutions

Thinking of designing and building your ultimate abode?  Perhaps, you are re-inventing one of Kelowna’s gorgeous heritage homes. Architecturally Distinct Solutions has the expertise to transform your storage woes and honor the residential vibes. We can help you incorporate your favourite architectural styles into your private residence. Your Kelowna architects know that home is where we nurture, rest, entertain, grow and sleep. It needs to be functional and organized for best results. Clutter can become distracting and unfocused chaos can follow! We recommend taking your daily schedule and preferences into account as you think about your new build. Key factors to consider for the place you kick off your heels and entertain as well as snuggle in and hibernate include:

  • Woodburning Fireplace
  • Skylights & Ambiance
  • Ample Smart Storage


Residential Architectural Styles

There are numerous residential features to consider when designing your “forever home.” Perusing popular architectural styles can help you zero in on which items would simplify your life and contribute to your ultimate organization. For instance, see-through and contemporary designs with tons of glass will require some creative storage solutions utilizing shelving, built-in libraries and hidden cabinets to streamline your style while keeping everything neatly in its place. From Contemporary to Federal Colonial styles to Mediterranean or Modern, there is definitely an architectural style that suits your residential dreams.

Kelowna Architect Discusses Secondary Heat Sources

Regardless of which design you fall in love with, incorporating a secondary heat source is a smart plan. Hopefully, the recent natural gas pipe explosion near Prince George isn’t a sign of what’s to come. However, if we truly believe aging pipelines and limited natural resources won’t eventually catch up with us, we are probably mistaken. Having a secondary, natural heat source in your home can provide your family with a means to stay warm, boil water and eat food in the event of a harsh winter storm or reduced power availability. Architecturally Distinct Solutions can help you dream up the perfect fireplace and bookshelves combo, ornate mantle with built-in wood storage or a dual-duty hearth that combines functional seating and storage! Especially when building your “forever” home, it is essential to consider what your needs may be today, as well as in the future.


Kelowna Architects Love Skylights

Embracing all the Okanagan sunshine has to offer is always a top priority. Architecturally Distinct Solutions can help you welcome the outside with strategically placed skylight options. Bathrooms are a popular location due to their humidity and the need for natural light for makeup application. Skylights featured above the dining area enable the stars the potential to accompany your evening meal. Master bedroom skylights offer whimsical enchantment as the perfect dreaming prerequisite; however, we couldn’t let you install without an automated skylight cover to enable you to take control of the morning light.
