The mandate for this project was to add complimentary living and work space that reinforced the original concept of a simple and modern living space enhanced by its natural surroundings. This was accomplished by adding two new wings separated by a reflecting pond on axis with the original courtyard, and the views beyond. Finishes on both the exterior and interior utilize a muted palette of materials to reinforce the harmony of living space mediated by its surroundings.
This project is a renovation and addition to a mid-century modernist house located in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The original house was a single storey square bungalow with a central courtyard and a fully glazed north façade with views across Howe Sound to the Coast Mountains.
