This modern mansion sits proudly on a blasted foundation with its removed rock re-purposed into beautiful retaining walls. The outdoor, in-ground, heated pool is surrounded by a stamped and coloured concrete patio that elegantly matches the interior slate floor tiles. Inside, a 730 square foot curtain wall of glass, engineered to conform to a strict BC Energy Act, is complimented by the client-designed etched glass room divider which mirrors the surrounding landscape.

Despite 18’ ceilings and copious use of glass, thermal efficiencies were achieved with the use of two heat pumps, a heat recovery system, and LED lighting throughout. Even the overhangs are meticulously designed to maximize the lower sunlight in the winter and eliminate the direct sun in the summer.

Fir beams span contiguously from the outside in, and when the eight panel Eclipse© doors fold open, the ultimate indoor/outdoor environment is achieved. From the radiant hydronic heat in the concrete floor, the linear drains installed in the open shower, to the flat panel arbutus veneer that creates wood artistry in the cabinets – no detail was overlooked in this elegant design.
