Situated on the edge of a bluff above Semiahmoo Bay, the house creates privacy while taking advantage of spectacular views of the water, islands and mountains to the west, east and south. The transformation from urbanity to tranquility begins at the street. From the north, the home is protected and unassuming. Thick concrete walls shield the occupants from sights and sounds of the busy road above. Glass window walls and expansive decks maximize the south facing side.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxOver three levels, the house slowly reveals its layers; principal living areas (living room, dining room and kitchen) are collected on the main level just off of the formal entry gallery. The master suite is private and tucked away on the second level while the family room, children’s bedrooms, sauna and exercise area on the ground floor open out to the lap pool and spa outside.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderThe cascading layers of the house are connected by a cast-in-place concrete stair. Glass guardrails are capped with a stainless steel handrail. The stair opens to a gallery on each level with views out to the Bay below. The simple material palette is durable and low maintenance. Concrete walls and floors, and natural unfinished zinc siding are contrasted with warm Douglas fir ceilings and soffits.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxProject gallerySee allShow lessThe 10 Buzzing Design Cities of 2018, as Selected by Metropolis MagazineArticles15 Eye-Popping Projects That Don’t Apologize For Using Color: Photos of the WeekArticles Share Houses Contractor: Photographs:  Benjamin Benschneider, Nic Lehoux, Chris Burnside / Olson Kundig Save this picture!© Benjamin Benschneider+ 19Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Year:  Architects: Olson Kundig Area Area of this architecture project Canada Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Cliff Dwelling / Olson KundigSave this projectSaveCliff Dwelling / Olson Kundig Highliner Construction Ltd.
