The client worked closely with our Calgary home design team to create this unique and stunning custom home design.

This home was designed for newly empty-nesters. They are a lovely couple who had lived in several homes before, and were currently living in a custom-designed home (not designed by us).

They knew what they wanted. There were elements of their previous home designs they wanted to replicate. But there were also things they wanted to change.

Here were a few key criteria for the design:

  • Must be a bungalow

  • Room to display their extensive art collection

  • Loves entertaining. Their home is constantly bustling with family and friends. Gatherings would range in size from an intimate dinner for 4 to events with over 100 people

  • They had a home-based business, so spent a lot of time at home

  • Loved being outside. Loved the forested natural setting of this lot.

  • Loved European architecture, and wanted to infuse European influences throughout the design, yet have the design modernized to today's trends.


The site is nestled in the community of Springbank, in the Muncipal District of Rockyview. It sits in a private new community, Stonewood, approximately 20 minutes west of Calgary. The site is very natural, and has the perfect balance between a forested setting and a 270 degree mountain view.

In my humble opinion, I think this client purchased one of the best lots in the community, as it sits highest in the community, and relative to the other homes (think - unobstructed mountain views!). The below photo shows only a portion of the 270 degree view their lot has... you can just imagine the ENTIRE view!
