Emily’s House consisted of a contemporary single-family residence with a minimal budget on a very complex site. Working with Bon Constructors and their trades, KRA was responsible for the interior design of this project ensuring quality, cost effectiveness and constructability.


Gair Williamson Architect Inc. prepared the architectural plans and continued to supervise the base building construction until City of West Vancouver issued its final Letters of Assurance. KRA provided the interior design services scope of work and further developed the space planning to better suit the needs of the client.
