This contemporary home design by Fook Weng Chan, located in ski-country close to Vancouver. Interiors are warm and welcoming, with wood and glass walls at every turn. An open concept architecture puts the living area on the main floor, loosely divided into smaller spaces by the striking Douglas Fir columns.
This house lot offered views across a glacial-fed lake to three mountain peaks, it is also located adjacent to a highway. Local basalt is used for the stone clad walls; local Douglas fir for the timber structure and ceiling panels in the great room.
The house presents a low-key, substantial stone walled front and a more open lantern-like private lakeside, resting on a landscaped terraced concrete podium. It is a of a moderne expression, but, upon closer scrutiny, rich with subtle displays of craftmanship – the expression of the human hand and spirit.
