A dramatic view of Vancouver Bay drives the design of this new 5,000 sq.ft. vacation residence. The clients’ love of open space in transposed to this steep forested hillside, with a spacious, simple living pavilion floating out towards the view. A c courtyard separates the living area from the tower-like master suite. The house enhances the feeling of being alone in the forest, isolated, quiet and serene, with all experiences dominated by the presence of the water, the islands and the sky.
