west vancouver modern : 1114 hillside [revisited]

1114 hillside - view of house

designed by : iredale group architecture with landscaping by bearmark design

built by : r.d. constr. surveys in 2014 [may 2015-listed for 10.88mil, nov 2015-relisted for 8.38mil]

located on a site with stunning views over vancouver and mount baker beyond, this house is orientated and opened up to take maximum advantage of this exposure while providing a sense of privacy from the neighbouring sites. the strong roof form is designed to contain the three levels as it wraps itself around and down the east side, effectively grounding the horizontal plains of the three floor levels. passive solar shades have been incorporated on the exterior to control heat gain and glare while adding another level of texture that enhances the detail of the overall composition.

the main spaces have been kept fairly shallow to allow good light penetration into the building and an oversized skylight is located above the two-story main entrance flooding it with natural light right down to the lowest level. the main stair winds itself down this vaulted space with cascading globes of light dripping from the upper most ceiling down to the wine cellar in the basement. the palette is restrained with muted colours and materials, allowing the strength of the form language to come through.
