Text description provided by the architects. This project is located in West Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. The building is a very long, carved rectangle that captures a stunning westward view. The house was designed around the idea of a covered, exterior living space, which is open to the view and morning light through a glazed clerestory window band.

On the east side, the floor plate is indented in 3 places which brings the landscape in, and provide relief to the flat facade.  The roof is a simple extrusion, made asymmetrical by the vaulted living spaces.

The vaulted roofs are represented by an open rafter, and contain the living spaces.  The the trussed roofs are represented by a flat soffit, and contain support spaces.  The muted exterior materials are concrete, wood and metal.
