From inception this house had an ambitious brief: create a family home equal parts warm, modern light filled ski cabin that also incorporates the best locally sourced materials, natural fabrics, and leading eco friendly standards and building practices. The result is something truly unique: a contemporary family home that incorporates the most innovative building practices without feeling compromised or industrial.

Contemporary Family Ski Cabin with Scandinavian Influences

For Sophie Burke Design this contemporary family ski cabin represents the evolution of design and architecture at Whistler and was incredible to be a part of. Locally sourced hemlock, whitewashed and used for all interior millwork, along with marble from Vancouver Island creates a soft Scandinavian aesthetic that is still very much West Coast and adds local context to this iconic Canadian location.

One of our challenges was to take a space that is very contemporary with many hard surfaces and make sure that it was still family friendly, cozy, calm and inviting. On an architectural level, we worked with the builders to create functional details such as solid baseboards and casings concealed to look like seamless drywall returns. Perfect for kids, ski boots, dogs, etc. On a design level we worked to add organic, natural elements through our use of materials and finishes. The den for instance, the one room which has minimal natural light, has grey wool wallpaper on all walls and a built in sofa to ensure it feels comfortable and warm.

The powder room and eating nook and custom bunkbeds are clad in solid hemlock to add warmth and texture. Ceramics from a local designer add an earthy, elemental feel. SBD was involved in every aspect of this design. From the the layout, space planning, staircase and millwork to the bedding, towels, artwork and vases, we were able to execute on a vision of serene simplicity and warmth.
