from the architect : the home is a response to its site: the roof alludes to the stunning mountain view, while the plan addresses the view of downtown vancouver and then fans out to address the street at the front entry porch. the home internalizes the geological forces of the primeval place, revealing the strength underlying the structure of our city.

from the builder : perched high above spanish banks with expansive ocean and mountain views from all levels, this meticulously designed home enhances the homeowner’s experience at every turn. designed with a diamond shaped roof to compliment the uniquely shaped lot, this home is truly a work of art.

    • Thanks for finding this one, Rob. I will try to post about it in the near future.
      I guess they think that now that Dan white is on longer around, his homes have dramatically increased in value.
      The house is cool looking and sexy but I cant imagine heating it in the winter. Still looks like original 80s windows and doors.
