June 29, 2016 ... New Project: Bowen Island Custom Home

We are very excited about our latest project, a super-sustainable custom home on Bowen Island.  The lot is beyond stunning: a green field site on the side of a mountain, overlooking forested hills that roll down to the Pacific Ocean, partially forested, with exposed outcroppings of bedrock .  You can’t ask for a more inspiring location.

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to explore the site in detail with our clients.  It was a beautiful day, so the whole experience was quite breathtaking.  As part of our in-depth site analysis we located and documented the site features including open view corridors, unique framed views, topography, vegetation and rock formations, solar access, and elements providing shade.

Now we have our heads down, as we kick-off the project.  This site demands something special, with soaring roof lines, natural materials, huge windows, a blurred line between in and out …. Stay tuned for more project updates. For now, here are some photos we took while on site, including a beer-o-clock break with the clients after a long day tromping around in the woods.
