I actually lived in the house pictured for about 10 years. It's in the Southlands neighbourhood in Vancouver. That photo was taken shortly after it was built. I can tell you that 50 years later, the house had become very well integrated with the landscape. As for the amount of glazing, I can only offer that each window framed a specific view and that very little heating was required in the winter and no air conditioning in the summer. I would say that Kenneth Gardner got it right.
