Kicking Horse Residence, Golden, British Columbia, Canada
Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Kicking Horse Residence is a purpose-built base for alpine adventures that balances rugged practicality with casual elegance. Inspired by the owners’ interest in traditional Scandinavian ski cottages, the building comprises a long kitchen-and-bedroom wing, a flared volume that funnels mountain views into the living and dining areas, and a central circulation “knuckle” that serves as a staging area for outdoor forays. “You can actually ski in from the east side of the house,” says architect Ray Calabro, AIA.

Calabro configured the house to accommodate large groups while maintaining an intimate scale. With children’s bedrooms designed on the bunkhouse model and window seats that double as beds, “it can actually sleep 14 people comfortably,” he says. The jury praised Calabro’s choice of “simple, durable materials,” calling the effect “modern and rustic—without being too cute.” Said one judge: “You could walk in and immediately feel comfortable.”
