Contemporary Home Design
Contemporary Home Design

McKinley Beach is a waterfront community based on a vision of harmony between the site’s natural beauty, the construction of lake view real estate, and the community amenities.

To achieve this balance, McKinley Beach has created a framework of design guidelines and a design approval process for homeowners, builders, and landscape designers. We encourage the architectural character at McKinley Beach to focus on site- and climate-appropriate expression while incorporating massing and architectural elements.

  Key Design Elements:

  • Contemporary design and architecture
  • Harmonized design scheme to incorporate natural environment
  • Roof styles: low pitch, flat, inverse and shed
  • 2 storey layouts
  • 1,884 sqft finished on the main floor
  • 1,884 sqft finished on the lower level
  • Indigenous landscaping
  • Low impact on trees and fauna
  • Preservation of view corridors
  • Resorative Landscaping of all disturbed areas

The design guidelines aim to support McKinley Beach’s vision by encouraging home designs that are complementary to the landscape and natural features. Home designs and construction are required to be responsive to each lot characteristic and to preserve natural features, including established trees and fauna whenever reasonably possible.

McKinley Beach is a waterfront community with incredible vistas of Okanagan Lake. Therefore, optimization of potential view corridors through low-scale, horizontal building massing integrated into the landscape is paramount.
