VANCOUVER, BC  |  SIZE: 4,000 SF  |  YEAR: 2004

This home functions as an aperture to the surrounding forest and mountain setting. The approach from the street side leads into the residence at ground level through a double height entry space. Naturally lit by way of glass doors and floor to ceiling windows, the entry is punctuated by a custom floating staircase that connects the front of the house to a cozy Media & Games area in the Mezzanine overlooking the Great Room and Dining areas below. The sloping shed roof opens up to breath taking views grazing the tops of trees & mountains beyond. The Great Room features a rustic stone wood-burning fireplace, custom built as a centerpiece for both large and more intimate gatherings.
