One of our favorite architecture firms in Vancouver, Openspace Architecture, presented this project to us last year.
The client, having previously lived in Switzerland, wanted a Bavarian inspired home with a contemporary feel inside.
In keeping with the woodland theme, we created an opening among the evergreens on the lower side of the property. We planted red-twig dogwoods which will be seen from the upper deck.
Using a fractal form, we developed an asymmetric stone stair tread installed throughout the severely banked property. This form will be used to create all platforms that extend from the house and will be seen in the development of the homes upper terrace.
