It took serious vision to imagine a family home on this shallow lot with a steep rock face, but with views like this of Whistler mountain, these clients were willing to stretch their imagination.
Working closely with the architect, we developed a unique layout for this modern home, maximizing functionality and emphasizing views.
The simple palette of white, black, concrete and natural oak runs through the entire house, creating a sense of continuity.
Creating a connection to the outdoors was an important aspect of the design, realized through vertical slot windows, repeated throughout the home offering glimpses of the view from every room and hinting at the expansive glass within the main living space.
The most prominent feature of the home is the stacked wood staircase that can be seen through the massive front window and creates a sculptural feature in the two storey entry. It was no easy feat by our talented construction team to pull off this unique design, inspired by a hotel lobby.
The overall space is fluid, simple, clean and warm. A true modern alpine getaway.
