The Creative Mind Behind Okanagan Modern

Outlook_Lots For Sale_Rendering

At Outlook, every home has a distinctive look and feel, thanks to the architectural genius of Brett Sichello, the driving force behind Brett Sichello Design. Brett is inspired by West Coast Modernism, known for its elegant, artistic fusion of indoor and outdoor living as well as its use of natural materials.

Okanagan Modern, says Brett, takes West Coast Modernism and adapts it for the climate found in BC’s Interior. “You have to be selective when using natural materials such as wood,” he notes. “There’s less rain in the Interior and the temperatures can be quite extreme, especially in the summer, so the materials have to be durable to minimize maintenance.”

The local climate plays a big role in BSD’s designs. “Because the summers are hot and dry, people spend a lot of time enjoying the outdoors. The design of the home achieves a seamless blend between the inside and outside. The actual interior living space of the home is extended by incorporating exterior space into the design, making the home feel larger.”

Outside, Brett says Okanagan Modern homes typically feature strong lines with a flat or low-slope roof. Inside, he says, “It’s all about functionality and efficiency of space planning. The open concepts result in minimal wasted space.” Each design is also based on the concept of residents being able to walk towards light. This can be natural light from a window or a light source that highlights something that’s visually appealing.

With every home at Outlook offering stunning views of Lake Okanagan, Brett designed with that in mind. There are plenty of outdoor entertainment spaces and ample glazing on the west windows facing the lake let residents enjoy the full beauty of the spectacular Okanagan sunsets.
