2013 CARE AWARDS
"Chris Walker, of Christopher Developments, has designed our new home in Victoria and he is now in the process of building it. The home is a redevelopment on the site of a pre-existing home. Chris has carried the project seamlessly through rigorous environmental and architectural requirements. The project is both on time and on budget. Chris has been able to anticipate and identify complications. He's assembled very professional sub trades who are technically superior, as well, they try to minimize their impact on the neighborhood.
I highly recommend Christopher Developments if you're looking to build a quality home with the knowledge that you're going to get exactly the home you've always wanted..."
Fitting into an established neighbourhood such as Uplands can be challenging, especially on a corner lot with a front yard facing two streets, however this custom-designed home does so with grace.
The Calgary owners, who purchased the property in 2006 had a small postwar house at the time, where their daughter lived while attending university until 2012. In designing a home to meet the needs of this early retired professional couple, Chris's focus was on taking full advatage of the natural surroundings while creating private yard spaces that flowed seamlessly into the primary living spaces.
The home was completed in May of 2013 and was the recipient of numerous CARE Awards including Best Single Family, Best Interior Design, Best Outdoor Living Space, Best Kitchen and Best Bathroom.
