White Rock and Surrey's beach community open their modern homes to the public September 20.
A welcome addition to Western Living Magazine’s Design Week, White Rock joins the modern home tour circuit with five houses showcasing the best of bay views and local design.The tour kicks off Sunday September 20, the day after the third annual Vancouver Modern Home Tour. Here’s a sneak peek inside the homes on the inaugural White Rock Modern Home Tour:
The refined and quintessential West Coast Modern Galadrial overlooks Semiahmoo Bay in White Rock. The natural stone, fir, glass and steel home is a collaboration between Peter Hildebrand and Stefan Walsh of Iredale Group Architecture and KBC Developments.
The Vidro Do Mar home in Surrey’s beach community was a collaboration between KBC Developments, Concept to Design Inc. and the client with a focus on natural light, woods and clean-lined spaces.
Known to architecture fans and local residents, the Wave House (a second KBC Developments and Concept to Design collaboration) is situated on a challenging, sloped lot, but still manages to capitalize on sweeping ocean views. Inside, each floor has a name: Sand, Sea, Surf and Sky—each connected by a floating walnut staircase and an elevator cleverly concealed by walnut panelling in the entrance.
4. OShaun Ocean Beach HouseThis White Rock home is called the OShaun house for good reason. It’s a name derived from a combination of the owners’ names and pronounced ‘ocean’—sweeping views of which you can enjoy on every level. Designed by Owen and Shauna Poppy of Surfside Construction, the interiors and materials are born from five decades of living in Semiahmoo Bay.
