This gorgeous house can be found in close proximity to Vancouver, Canada, and it was designed by a firm called Garret Cord Werner. Even though it was built on a modest budget, the abode boasts exceptional living arrangements as well as an eye-catching exterior that was created using high quality materials.
Since it is surrounded by a lush, green forest, the residence offers fabulous views from almost every room, views that are framed by generously-sized windows. The sliding glass doors also help ease the transition between the indoor and outdoor areas and contribute to an atmosphere of wellness and tranquility. On the upper floor, the residents are able to enjoy a wonderful sky garden that offers fantastic opportunities for relaxation as well as much needed privacy.
The living room flaunts a comfortable sofa as well as a small coffee table, a fireplace, a flat-screen TV and a central wall that separates it partially from the kitchen. This living area further includes a small dining table, but dining arrangements for up to 5 people can also be found in the kitchen.
From the Garret Cord Werner:
The architecture & interiors of this new home design by Garret Cord Werner represents a high quality of new construction on a modest budget.
Over 20 ft. high concrete walls frame the dramatic entry into the home that features a floating open riser staircase. The home was designed to maximize light & to make one feel as much a part of the forest surrounding the home as possible.
Oversized sliding glass doors & clear story windows are used to reinforce this inside-out relationship to the garden.
Upstairs, a signature feature of our work is what we call a sky garden. This is an exterior garden that is enclosed & open to the sky. It provides a private green space & a wonderful light filled experience that is not expected on an upper floor.
