build : 2002
transitional styled home on rugged ocean beachfront

description

This house is located on a spectacular beach overlooking the ocean on Vancouver Island. The scattered debris from previous winter storms add drama to the location and sets the tone for this beautiful traditional "seaside Home".

With the high rainfall experienced in the location the roof pitch was designed to suit and rain-screening of the walls was effected by the contractor. Large double volume living room with floor to ceiling glass maximizes the aspect of the location and provides stunning views up and down the beach through the bay window shape designed into the shape of the house.

Inside two large douglas-fir beam structures dominate the great-room space in this house which link the front a rear sides together. The windows are carefully placed to capture south light (street side) which is always vital to making a house comfortable to live in. The beach side has been designed to retain the natural landscape which makes a spectacular setting for this island home. The house is simple in design, not ostentatious or loud - "casual comfort" was the request from the client.
