Divided into three distinct cantilevered units the house offers a wonderful view of the green ranch even while giving those inside all the privacy they need. It is concrete and corten steel panels that shape the exterior of House N with the formers used for the lower level and on the inside.
Existing building constraints meant that the street façade of the house was left completely untouched while a modern living area kitchen and dining were added to the rear. Connecting the rear garden smaller inner courtyard and barbecue zone with the living space the revitalized interior is filled with a flood of natural light.
It is an exposed brick wall that act as the visual link between the open living area kitchen and the lovely courtyard just outside. Starting its journey at the kitchen bench the meanders through the living room becomes all too apparent at the barbecue zone and ends it journey by morphing into a long bench seat at the end of the courtyard.
The condo is just a stone’s throw away from the Stanley Park and a few blocks away from the hip English Bay beach and with one bedroom and one bathroom it is indeed a perfect place for an urban couple.
