Traditional forms, contemporary living

In this uniquely designed home, four gabled forms seamlessly come together, creating a truly distinctive architectural marvel.

The thoughtful design of the house takes into account the possibility of future subdivision of the site, ensuring flexibility and adaptability. A guest pavilion graces the western side, forming a protective barrier that shelters the inhabitants from the southern sun, creating a serene outdoor space.

The residence features an expansive north-facing deck, effortlessly accessible from the living and kitchen areas, making entertaining a breeze. An adjacent office space, situated next to the scillion roofed entryway, provides a picturesque view of the driveway, combining functionality with aesthetics.

The master suite, bathed in sunlight, connects to the main deck, strategically set back to offer a deeper perspective across the property. The exterior of the house is adorned with a mix of western red cedar and plaster, striking a balance between openness and privacy. The interior follows a minimalist, white theme, creating a simple yet elegant ambiance that serves as a perfect backdrop for showcasing objects and artworks.

This home stands as a testament to thoughtful design, where architectural innovation meets practicality, creating a harmonious blend of aesthetics and functionality.
