Lakecrest Residence is an imposing mountain chalet in Whistler, Canada perched atop a rocky cliff in a lakeside neighborhood of Whistler, Canada. As you probably guessed, this is one of those homes that takes in its vibrant natural landscape. The creative team at a|k|a Architecture + Design left nothing to chance: large glass windows, Brazilian cherry wide plank hardwood floors, maple millwork and native sandstone are brought together in a captivating palette of materials and finishes. All these properly “reflect” the majestic environment.

According to the architects, the social areas (kitchen, dining, family room) are organized along a spacious circulation spine creating gathering spaces that face outwards towards the lake and mountains beyond. The spine terminates at the Great Room which cantilevers over the existing steep terrain and opens up to the views in all directions. The bedrooms are located in a separate wing directly related to a private and quiet exterior courtyard. All interiors are spacious and welcoming, with minimalist furniture arrangements redirecting focus on the variety of textures.
