Timber Home Design by Sturgess Architecture

Designed by Calgary-based Sturgess Architecture, this wood country home on Bowen Island faces north on a steep cliff overlooking Howe Sound, surrounded by nature with water at its feet 100m below. This timber home design was made for a couple and their two children, visitors and extended family, divided as a primary residence and guest house which are linked under one roof. An elongated bowtie plan maximizes the aperture of glazing and view to the North, while on approach from the South, only the roof marks its presence in the landscape. Naturally finished slate, cedar shingles and copper coloured roof denote a building that challenges with form yet eases itself into the coastal context. – Photography by Robert Lemermeyer

    A timber frame home has been on my all time wish list. (In this economy it may stay there for a while) The location from the this one seems exceptionally nice.
    Very fine pictures.
