Downtown is renowned for its beautiful industrial lofts that tend to combine the modern with the classic design style that is so unique to the city. While this stylish loft townhouse in the neighborhood does not embrace any industrial overtones it sure charms you with its smart usage of available space and proximity to the bustling English Bay.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms elegantly distributed over two stacked boxes perched on the rocky cliff. The open-plan kitchen and the living area have floor-to-ceiling windows to make sure you don’t miss the beauty of the scenery – the stunning lake and the surrounding mountains. But everything changes when you walk outside on the expansive roof decks and recharge your battery from this terrifically laid-back escape from the pressures of the real world.
Sustainable design and green home architecture are much more than a mere compilation of the latest smart home technology that saves up on energy. Design planning and the overall silhouette of the house also play a pivotal role in shaping the power and resource consumption of the structure.
Crafted by Affleck de la Riva architects the semi-detached house is located on a hillside and works around the asymmetric topography of the site to deliver a truly stunning residence filled with elegance and opulence.
The clean and simple lines that define the home are also reflected in the decor choices and colorful additions are kept to a bare minimum. A gorgeous dining area with an oversized pendant light and a kitchen with a long breakfast bar complete the lower level.
A large opening above the kitchen allows light to filter through from the top floor even as the inimitable Tom Dixon Copper pendant lights add a bright metallic glint to the space. Long corridors double up as storage space with built-in shelves and hidden cabinets while an ergonomic home office is tucked away in the rear.
While the street façade of the offers ample privacy the rear of the residence opens up to offer captivating views of the surrounding landscape. Designed by K_M Architektur the floating design of the house gives it an inimitable silhouette while the scenic backdrop adds to its visual appeal.
