bringing a balance between exterior and interior using a variety of design principles
Natura Condos’ site is surrounded on three sides by Horn Creek Park in Abbotsford, which provided an incredible opportunity for a development that harmonizes with nature and provided the inspiration for the layout, overall design concept and materiality. With approximately half of the original 3 acre site dedicated to public park space, and required environmental setbacks from the adjacent creek, putting together the building form was an incredible opportunity to do something unique. Design principles from many sources were incorporated, including LEED, Passive House, and feng shui. A wide variety of unit types and sizes, from studio to 3-bedroom plus den, are included, all with large windows and decks to bring a balance of exterior and interior spaces.
