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.

Point Grey Residence in Vancouver / BattersbyHowat Architects

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.
