Bowen Island, B.C.
This craftsman home allows natural light to flow effortlessly into itself through a careful choreography of glazing types. The home was designed on one of the Pacific Northwest Coast’s favourite gulf islands as a place to live year-round. The extensive use of raw post and beams paired with finished and vibrant surfaces enhance and complement its stepped waterfront setting. The open stairway acts as a central axis for the home to operate on, offering extensive uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean while the vaulted ceilings lend height to the surrounding Douglas Fir and Cedar trees.
