In the summer of 2004, SOS Design opened the door to its new “storefront” office in Vic West, demonstrating a commitment to responsible design by incorporating many green building techniques.
This particular project faced restrictions relating to small lot subdivision. Therefore, every effort was made to create a feeling of spaciousness, enhanced by an abundance of natural light within a very small building envelope.
By blasting rock on the site, we were able to create an 800 square foot office space which is entered at street level, keeping the private entrance tucked away at the back of the house, one level up. To help offset our small lot, we developed a roof deck which has views over the harbour to the Olympic Mountains beyond.
