EAGLE DRIVE RESIDENCE

Whistler, BC

 

The Eagle Drive Residence is a 5000 sq. ft. single-family home located in one of Whistler's oldest residential neighbourhoods with spectacular views of Whistler, Blackcomb and surrounding mountains. The contemporary design incorporates the vernacular materials of the typical Whistler mountain home but applies them in a modern language with clean and simple gestures that are at once bold yet subtle.

 

The house asserts its presence on the street yet respectfully refers to its context through its warm use of timber, stone and natural cedar wood siding.  The grand living spaces feature expansive glass windows that open up to views beyond.
