Text description provided by the architects. The Beachaus II was recently completed in the City of White Rock, British Columbia. Designed by Chris Pardo of Elemental Design. The home was configured to maximize privacy while maintaining light and view. Built as five modules in a factory across the border by Method Homes, the home achieved LEED Platinum (the first home in the area to reach this level of sustainable design). Beachaus II is just over 2,000 sqft living up to its developer (Inhaus Development) motto of “live smart, not large”.

A truly hybrid approach was used in the construction, a lower site poured concrete garage gives the home a solid substantial feel contrasting the vast openness of the upper modular level. An exterior stair accessed from the living room is positioned within the exterior shroud and leads to a roof deck with gorgeous views of Semiahmoo Bay. The home utilizes energy-efficient design and technology including, HRV air-exchange system, high-performance windows, radiant heating, tight thermal envelope with high performance spray foam insulation. Rainwater is collected from the roof and used to help irrigate the low-maintenance yard.
