Point Grey Residence in Vancouver / BattersbyHowat Architects

Project: Point Grey Residence
Architects: BattersbyHowat Architects
Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Year 2016

Description by BattersbyHowat Architects: Located on a large lot in the West Point Grey area of Vancouver, this five bedroom, three level home sits atop a hill and maximizes views of the city and the surrounding landscape. The clients requested an elegant, modern home with a high level of sophistication but also a home that was not pretentious. The resulting design is an integration of form and function, nature and architecture.

Screens are used to modulate the light and provide an interplay between privacy and visibility. Light wells allow for a connection with the landscape when in the lower level. A central concrete wall is the backdrop for a dramatic set of open stairs—three flights stacked upon each other. Concrete and soft grey furnishings are tempered with white walls, black accents, and dark walnut floors and millwork.
