Homeowners, Sharryn and Tobias, brought on Stark Architecture Ltd. to design and build their dream home, taking command of the awe-inspiring views from the site which extend South-West back towards the peaks of winter playground, Whistler.
Rather than doubling up on-site work, Stark Architecture turned the building into a giant retaining wall, holding back the road. Inside, the building steps down three levels, with the main floor having a mixture of single and double height spaces.
Interconnecting bridges join the expansive spaces, which are filled with natural light. The bedrooms are placed on the quiet lower floor to be both cool in the summer, and well insulated in the winter. The narrow plans also allow for a yard for the young family, something the client didn’t expect to receive from such a steep site.
