Sunset House in Vancouver, Canada by McLeod Bovell Modern Houses

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Article source: McLeod Bovell Modern Houses

Located on a steep and technically challenging site in West Vancouver, the Sunset House is designed to capture immediate views of heavy marine traffic and the open sea to the west. The irregular shape of the sites boundaries align with the edge of the house and culminate in a substantial blinder which provided privacy from adjacent properties.

Floating House in Vancouver, Canada by ARNO MATIS ARCHITECTURE INC

Monday, May 28th, 2018


Floating house captures Vancouver’s “West Coast Fusion”: a contemporary mix of eastern and western influences fused with indoor/outdoor living. This highly innovative private residence designed by Arno Matis breaks new ground with an architectural concrete envelope that uses a completely unique white concrete mix custom developed exclusively for the project. The composition appears to float on a large reflecting pool set within an oriental garden setting. Large expanses of glazing and sliding doors are framed in mahogany and screened with a dynamic architectural wood screen. The interiors flow with cascading floor slabs and dramatic volumes as unnecessary partitions are removed to create interior ‘exhibition’ spaces. The minimalist interior finishing details include stone slab floors, a suspended main stair of steel and hardwood; floating ceilings; and suspended custom fireplace, including a glowing onyx fireplace feature in the Master bedroom.

Helix Residential Tower Vancouver in Columbia by MA2

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Article source: MA2

The concept proposal is a residential tower that aggregates, turns, shifts, connects and radiates across the skyline of Vancouver. The tower is a submission for iconic tower designs for sky-high living and dynamic structures.  By having a residential tower that rotates as its ascending vertically with a bifurcation connection, its gives the tower new possibilities in its performance and iconic presence. Helix formations and spiral lattice structures influence the tectonic shifting and architectural logic for structural and visual resilience. Tower connections with multipurpose spaces and clubhouses add to the dynamic ambiance of sky-high living and poly-valiant architectural expressions.  The tower design was conceptualized to be an expression that can position itself in a multiple selection of sites across the globe giving it a universal strategy and resonance.

2211 Cambie – South Creek Landing in Vancouver, Canada by Arno Matis Architecture

Monday, February 19th, 2018

Article source: Arno Matis Architecture

A once forgotten site sitting adjacent a new underground rapid transit line, this project sits on the southern gateway of Vancouver’s grand Cambie boulevard.

Designed to capture the vortex energy of the neighbouring bridgehead, building vocabulary is sweeping and spiraled to capture this energy created by the adjacent bridge ramps. Edges are curved and fragmented to evoke the idea of movement, as if the energy of the street itself is pealing the surfaces of the building apart. The building turns its corners in prow-like forms that track sun-angles and provide passive horizontal and vertical sun-shading.

Milner Modern Residence in Vancouver, Canada by Comelite Architecture & Structure

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Article source: Comelite Architecture & Structure

In Canada, by grasping a modern home renovation, this is the new outcome of a usual quiet family house. With a garage ducked into the lowest ground; what stood before on its topper level, being seen at front sight was a one-floor building.

Now though after removing meters of soil that blocked our entrance design, the residence can make full use of their fresh inserted third floor by taking its new implemented stairs. There is a whole pitch wide enough to fit an open kitchen leading into the dining area as well as a living room next door. Just how the client has asked for and couldn’t believe how we managed it.
