Vancouver, BC

The site, in the flat Southland’s area of Vancouver, is surrounded by established single family residences. Mature evergreens flank three edges of the site creating a verdant backdrop for the creation of, in the client’s words, a “Pocket Eden”.

 The plan organizes the major living areas across the full width of the site and focuses views into the private garden while the external form steps nimbly upward creating a ‘pavilion like’ composition at the edge of a forest clearing.
