This commercial project was the replacement of an existing mountain lodge in Yoho National Park, including a lodge and 26 cabins to serve as luxury accommodations. In keeping with the historic timber-frame tradition, the lodge was built with reclaimed Douglas fir posts and beams. All flooring is made of reclaimed wood, lending the space a weathered patina appropriate for its context. Forming the symbolic centre of the lodge, a stone hearth is surrounded by glazing that frames a view of the Kicking Horse River basin and mountains beyond.

This modern beach house in the Kitsilano area was built to maximize the site’s spec- tacular view of English Bay, the North Shore mountains, and the city skyline. An open living space, frameless glazing, neutral colour and material palette complement the minimal lines of the architecture and blur the lines between the home and nature, interior and exterior spaces.

Notable features: frameless glazing, sky garden, “see-through” fire place, clerestory window, slot window, rooftop patio
