Situated on a steep and technically challenging site, this single family home was designed to capture views of the outer harbour and heavy marine traffic along the jagged West Vancouver coast line. The home’s irregular shape traces the site boundary, coming to an angled blinder that provides privacy from tight adjacent properties. A natural, minimalist palate of raw concrete, steel, leather and wood creates a calm interior space that doesn’t distract from the framed ocean view beyond.

Movement into the house is carefully choreographed to disguise the considerable elevation change from street to living space – no individual stair run is greater than 1/2 story, allowing an unobstructed sightline from the oversized pivot entrance door through to the terrace. Similarly, the split level arrangement allows for generous volumes in the main living spaces and a closer connection between upper and main floor, while also providing dramatic elements such as the 40 foot elevation drop from the suspended deck and plunge pool to the rear garden below.
