Private Residence Design, Modern Home designed by Hotson Bakker Architect. Located in Vancouver, BC, Kanada. This private residence is an intended contradiction of dynamism and repose. The combination of steel and concrete offset with open, airy spaces creates a unique residence with a distinct Pacific Northwest feel. The home is characterized by many environmental features such as passive solar design, a clerestorey venting system and use of local materials.

The site is a 100’ x 140’ corner lot in Vancouver’s west side. The intention of the house was to create a combination of dynamism and repose. This combination was created by the tension between complex tectonic elements (acting as shelter) engaged with very simple, expressively quiet volumes (acting as spaces for inhabitation). From the north, a large metal carapiece roof cradles the main volume of the house, which in turn opens up to the views to the south-west.
