The Reach won the SAB Magazine Canadian Green Building Award for the Residential [Small] Award/ Prix résidentiel (petite taille) category.
The jury commented:
“A meticulous rehabilitation and upgrade project, that converts a 19th century four-bedroom farmhouse into a 2-bedroom guesthouse, with the original post and beam structure being enclosed in a new high-performance building envelope. The addition of a Passive House standard kitchen, dining and living area to the rear of the house integrates seamlessly with the original, being barely discernible as a new structure. An elegantly detailed project notable for its restraint.”
