Project: Liu/Lum Residence
Contractor: Bela Construction Ltd.
We were approached by a couple who were looking for an architecturally interesting, but reasonably priced house for their lot in Richmond. We kept the floor plan and massing fairly simple–the house is approximately 2500 sq ft on 2 floors. The ground floor is wrapped by a protective roof supported by exposed glulam beams and galvanized steel posts. Most of the ground floor is clad with horizontal cedar, while the remainder of the house is a combination of stucco and fiber-cement panels. Planters of exposed concrete form a substantial base to the house–and polished concrete is used as the finished floor at the ground floor.
