Rodeo Drive House Calgary Alberta

Rodeo Drive House is a unique family home built on a small, triangular lot that was considered virtually unusable. Situated atop a ridge overlooking the Calgary Stampede Grandstand, the views are magnificent from the upper floors. To take full advantage of the site, we lifted the basement and placed main living areas on the second floor. The Great Room opens up to a dramatic two-storey covered terrace.

The key challenges were:
• A unique family home on a virtually un-buildable site, created by thinking outside the box
• The lot is a small triangle. The front property line is the hypotenuse. Space planning was di cult!
• Many bylaw relaxations were required to make this home possible

The solutions were:
• Alloy Homes Incorporated used the triangular side yards to set up two different axes on the floor plan
• This gave us extra width along the front façade, which we used to create a covered outdoor terrace.
• The home sits on a ridge overlooking the Calgary Stampede grounds.The views are more magnificent
the higher you go, so we lifted the basement and placed main living areas on the second floor.
• Clients requested a loft-like living space with all major functions in one room
