Introducing Western Living’s 2023 Designers of the Year Award Winners
We live in a beautiful placeand don't our designers know it.
They say life's about the journey, not the destinationbut any hiker will tell you It's hard to beat the view from the top. Here in the West, we're blessed with some of the most beautiful mountainscapes, seascapes and even skyscapes in the country, and our designers know how to craft a space that does the view justice. Sometimes, it is what's on the outside that counts.
This story was titled Okanagan Sunshine House, for obvious reasons. Architect Daniel White built the L-shaped home for maximum east-west sunshine and that killer lake landscape.
Simple materials like clay, plaster and wood allow the view to be the real star of the show in this Bowen Island home designed by Werner Forster.
This modest West Vancouver cottage and separate studio designed by Harold Kalke,Candace Lundy and Russell Hollingsworth was built instead of one massive home, to ensure the neighbours still got the ocean view they paid for.
This McLeod Bovelldesigned West Vancouver home has floor-to-ceiling, ocean-facing windows well-suited for religious ownersIt's heaven on earth.
Architect Fook Weng Chan camped on the grounds of this Salt Spring Island home before starting his design, and his mindfulness of the landscape shows.
