AUTHENTIC STYLE IN CALGARY’S NEW WEST.

Choose from six complementary and distinctive architectures authentic to their origins, including modern Contemporary, scenic Mountain and Prairie, or historic Craftsman, Farmhouse, and Châteauesque styles. Combined through astute, street-oriented urban planning, they form a timeless yet evolutionary composition that is distinctly Calgarian.

Craftsman Style

Craftsman Style

Craftsman style homes are typically wide frontage bungalows with low-pitched gable roofs accentuated by wide overhangs and exposed roof rafters. The most common design for a Craftsman bungalow is a partial front porch configuration where the porch gable is perpendicular to the main roof. Porches are typically supported by tapered square columns although a variety of column configurations are used.

Mountain Craftsman Style

Mountain Craftsman Style

Mountain Craftsman style homes share many characteristics with traditional Craftsman homes. The main feature that sets Mountain Craftsman homes apart is the use of stained wood timber details. White windows are not allowed. The wall cladding materials may have a stained finish or painted in earth tone colours; typically shades of green, taupe, or brown. Trims may have a stained finish or be painted, often closely matching wall colour.

Prairie Style

Prairie Style

Prairie style houses often have a dominant 2-storey central form, flanked by other one or two-storey forms in a cruciform plan. They have low pitched hipped roofs and large overhanging eaves. Entries are usually off-centre and often concealed behind a garden wall. Earth tones are typically used for the main body of the houses. Trims are typically darker, though complementary colours.

Modern Prairie Style

Modern Prairie Style

Modern Prairie Style homes combine aspects of the traditional Prairie Style, particularly the low sloped hipped roof with broad overhangs, with the cladding materials, fenestration patterns and minimalist detailing of contemporary residential architecture.

Farmhouse Style

Farmhouse Style

Inspired by traditional rural house types found across North America. The style is characterized by simple gabled roofs, and front porches. Cladding materials are typically horizontal bevelled siding and vertical board & batten panelling. They have full width porches, modest roof overhangs, and often have dormers.

Urban Mountain Style

Urban Mountain Style

Building a home in the mountains used to mean dark rooms and heavy textures with bear skin rugs and deer heads. Rustic was key and it was perfect for a weekend getaway. Times have changed and homeowners are looking for a modern update to a traditional style. Urban Moutain style architecture retains a portion of the rustic style but blends it with other materials and colours.

Contemporary Style

Contemporary Style

The contemporary style has its origins in the late 19th and early 20th centuries when technological and social changes brought about a movement that promoted a shift away from the historical architectural style of the past. Contemporary style homes typically have flat roofs, with either a parapet or a broad overhang. Building massing is generally composed of simple rectangular forms, with the wall surface broken up by projecting planes, recessed and changes in cladding materials and colours.

Châteauesque Style

Châteauesque Style

Châteauesque is a revival style based on French Renaissance architecture of monumental country houses. Châteauesque styles are typically asymmetrical with a roof line broken in several places and a facade of advancing and receding planes. Porches are very common in this style. They are usually one-storey in height and can extend along one or both sides of the house in addition to the front facade.

A higher calibre of porch-front living.

Think of the charming homes you see in movies and television or the beautiful, timeless properties in Calgary's historic neighbourhoods. What do they both share in common? Garages don't dominate the front. We all yearn for a home like that of our very own - the inviting porch, the architecture that excites, the front door and railings you can imagine decorating for the holidays. The truth is, laned homes have always been better for the people living within them, but they haven't always been better built. It's time to give laned homes their proper due, build them right, and start living our best lives.

It's all in the details;

  • Premium exterior cladding.
  • Coloured window sashes.
  • Front yard landscaping.
  • Included garages.

Premium exterior cladding.

Alpine Park is a premium community through-and-through, and one of the key ways that's achieved is through durable, long-lasting materials like HardiePlank or stucco siding on every single home, from simple, tasteful Towns to the most dramatic Vintage residences.
