Location: Whistler, Canada
Client: Private Client
Project Year: 2014
Cost: Over £2mThe site for this house is in an exceptional location with views to surrounding mountain ranges. It sits on a distinctive rocky outcrop above Alta Lake, which gives the project its name. Our competition proposal sought to reconcile several contradictions – expansive views and living spaces whilst maintaining a sense of intimacy, maximising inhabitable area whilst maintaining an understated appearance from public view.
The project comprises a main residence, guest house and outdoor pool within a series of landscaped levels cut into and built out of the rock.
Through sensitive site analysis, the proposed residence acts as an extension of the existing landscape.
