We spend a lot of time marvelling at beautiful interiors, but sometimes its what's on the outside that counts.
The materials used to build this Vernon, B.C. home make it appear as if the house has been here for centuries; the Japanese-style charred wood exterior adds to the illusion. See more of this stunning Okanagan home.
The black cedar siding on this Cedric Burgers-designed home emphasizes the geometry of the frameless, angled, triple-paned crystalline glass windows. See more of this vintage modernist home.
This West Vancouver home, with its irregular shape and atypical residential building materials, is more akin to a modern-day South American project. Think minimalist character, structural order and harmonious coexistence with the natural environment. See more of this gorgeous split-level home.
Denise Ashmore’s home in Vancouver’s Douglas Park neighbourhood offers a new take on the classic front porch design. See more of this innovative design.
Instead of following the usual template (building a laneway house that looks like a mini version of a full-sized home), Javier Campos looked to houseboats for inspiration. See more of this quirky, asymmetrical home.
This Bowen Island home is part cabin, part art gallery and part viewpoint—architect Cedric Burgers pushed the house as close to the cliff’s edge as he could. See more of this seaside retreat.
This modern, 2,617-square-foot box is not your typical summer cabin: on the building’s exterior (comprised of whitewashed cedar and grey cement-board lab siding), a hood extends from the roof and side of the house to provide protection from the wind and rain. See more of this BattersbyHowat-designed home.
This Gulf Island residence was actually built in a prefab factory, then trucked and barged over to the island where the origami-like building now stretches more than 180 feet along a sheltered waterfront. See more of this Tony Robins-designed home.
To take advantage of this beautiful, sloping mountain site, architects David Battersby and Heather Howat developed a Y-shaped plan that provides privacy and captures the view. See more of this modern Whistler cabin.
