Sometimes I dare to dream or maybe it’s my way of motivating myself. But I really hope that one day I will be able to retreat to a summer house somewhere in the woods. Give me a lake and it’s the perfect picture. A case in point: the by Mcfarlane Biggar Architects + Designers near Vancouver in British Columbia Canada.
Spread across three different levels and the custom-crafted townhouse exudes an airy and spacious vibe thanks to the square clean-lined architecture which visually enhances the compact rooms. A variety of textures in the form of exposed concrete walnut wood and stainless steel give the interior a unique appeal.
The private spaces are housed on the top level that offers scenic views even as it opens up into the beautiful backyard. Relaxing nooks next to the pool lots of greenery and a street façade that offers complete privacy ensure that this inimitable residence is transformed into a serene and tranquil hub with luxurious modern comforts!
While the focus at the 65BTP-House remains firmly outside the interior reflects the homeowner’s passion for nature and the effort of the architects to craft a residence that exudes this love. While the color scheme is kept largely neutral with white dominating the interior the addition of smart wooden surfaces brings warmth and textural contrast instantly. A stunning spiral staircase adds to the sculptural appeal of the decor even as a lovely living area kitchen entertainment hub and dining room complete the lower level of the residence.
The house is a stunning example of modern architecture and peaceful island living. It was designed and built to fulfill the wishes of a young Vancouver couple with two children. Nothing is too complicated inside.
A front and rear pavilion indoor courtyards and open balconies extend the living area outdoors as the panoramic views outside add to the overall appeal of the house. The neutral color scheme and unassuming yet plush decor ensure that the ocean backdrop remains the defining characteristic of the home. Bringing glass steel and concrete together with panache this tranquil getaway is all about the landscape that surrounds it!
