At Type Three Homes we value timeless design. We believe that timeless design is modern in any era. For us, modern is about clean, simple lines, honest materials and the philosophy that a structure’s form is equally as important as its function. The design that Type Three believes in and provides is a “livable modern”. Our projects embrace organic materials, natural lighting, and open concept living.
Our designs are custom tailored to meet the needs and wants of our clients. Your home should fit your family’s lifestyle just like anything else you own. At Type Three Homes, we know that our clients understand the value of good architecture and desire a home that is as unique as they are.
When it comes to sustainability, Type Three Homes is at the forefront of innovative building. Through our expertise in Sustainable Building Science and array of available eco options, we ensure each home we build is a testament to environmental responsibility. Conservation, innovation and efficiency are the foundation of every Type Three home.
We design with the future in mind. Each project that Type Three Homes builds is designed with the ability to adapt to future technology and innovations. With escalating environmental concerns we see sustainable building and foresight, as not only an ethical decision, but our only decision.
Type Three believes that mature neighborhoods can be revitalized through modern infill development. Infill development is basically re-purposing an existing lot by building a new home where an old home previously existed. Before construction of the new infill home, we either move the existing house to be re-purposed in a new location, or we dismantle it. We recycle and reclaim products where ever possible.
We are huge fans of mature neighborhoods. The obvious benefit to building in an older area is living in a character rich neighbourhood on a beautifully treed lot, but for us we are also very determined to prevent urban sprawl. From a sustainability standpoint living in older neighborhoods usually lends itself to more walking and biking and this in turn means far less pollution.
At Type Three Homes we want to change the everyday standards of community living in Lethbridge. We want to challenge people to not merely co-exist in a community, we want you to truly be able to live in your new home and enjoy your new neighborhood. We want to see vibrant communities. We want to see pedestrian friendly spaces. We want to see communities where people really know their neighbors. We want to see communities where kids actually play outside. We want to see block parties. We want to see communities where neighbors support each other in times of need. For Type Three this is the essence of true community.
