Front Elevation This modern home is modeled after the traditional Kikyuly house of the Shuswap, Chilcotin, Lilwat and Okanagan areas of Canada. It is designed to be built on a sloping or flat site, and can be partially underground, as with the traditional Kikyuly house.
Main Floor Plan The building consists of two octagonal structures, interconnected to give a series of interesting interior spaces and exterior shapes. The heavy timber structure of angled logs and poles is exposed on the interior creating a beautiful log & pole ceiling.
Upper Floor Plan An upper floor contains a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The stair and landing overlook the livingroom area, while surrounding windows provide for wide views and plenty of light.
Features of this home are:
  • The total floor area: 205 square metres (2,206 sq.ft.)
  • Two main floor bedrooms and one upper master bedroom
  • Extensive living area and dining area
  • Two Bathrooms
  • Central Fireplace in Livingroom
  • Open living / dining / kitchen area
  • Open ceiling with exposed wood structure

  • The house would be well-suited for a site with a view on the opposite side of the house from the street (waterfront).
