Squamish, BC


This contemporary home features open and inviting spaces that capture beautiful mountain and forest views. Built with a modest budget, custom details are integrated with the carefully composed windows to create unique and pleasing interiors.


A landscaped walkway along the south side of the house leads to the private front door and generous entry area. The open kitchen, dining and living room areas are articulated by dropped ceilings, custom millwork and other architectural features. Large expanses of glass curate the views and provide ample natural light. A steel and glass staircase, with solid maple wood treads, continues the sense of openness as it rises to the upper floor bedrooms. Large windows at the top of the stairs create a light well, naturally illuminating the interior of the home.
