Designer Angela Robinson mastered a balancing act in this 1,200-square-foot lower-level space in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood. “It’s kind of like two homes in one: the entire front is above grade, but the back is buried and windowless.”

The residents, a young couple with a baby girl, moved into the semi-basement to be closer to their parents, who own the house and live upstairs. “I wanted to create a bright and minimal space for this family,” says Angela. “One that felt like the furthest thing from a basement!” And that’s exactly what she did.
