Charing Court was designed as a young, successful couple’s zen-like escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The thoughtful remodel of a Burnaby, BC, custom home built in the 1980s took an environmentally-conscious approach, utilizing the structure’s existing foundation to avoid disturbing the nearby green-space any more than necessary.

We took great care and consideration in building the house of this couple’s dreams. The result? A 6,300 sq.ft. yoga-inspired home that perfectly fits the unusual lot shape while reflecting a sense of understated luxury.
