The clients of this home were looking for a house that would eventually become their fulltime residence but could also serve as a getaway, vacation and gathering place in the interim. Save this picture!© Steve Keating PhotographyLocated at the south end of Desolation Sound on Cortes Island, British Columbia, the site is formed of natural granite bedrock and contains a dramatic peninsula and cliff which serve as a windbreak for Cortes Bay as well as the Seattle and Vancouver yacht clubs.  Save this picture!© Steve Keating PhotographyTo the south, the house is exposed to the Straight of Georgia which delivers extremely high wind speeds and salt spray during winter storms. To withstand the high winds, the house structure is embedded into the bedrock with steel columns and exposed wood floor beams allowing the house to cantilever off the hillside. Steel cross braces resist the large lateral forces brought by the high winds. Save this picture!renderingThe entry side of the house sits level with the bedrock and is made up of visually solid concrete forms that create the entry space and anchor the house to the site. From the entry, one accesses the central great room which includes the living, dining and kitchen, all with expansive views to the straight beyond.  Save this picture!© Steve Keating PhotographyThe main gathering space opens up to a south facing exterior deck by way of a grand 11ft tall by 24ft wide custom sliding door. This great room is flanked by a guest suite and study to the west and a master suite that captures the morning sunlight from the east.Save this picture!© Steve Keating PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessEagle Nest Hut Proposal / Piero CerattiArticles(RE)Configured-Assemblage / WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC and XP& ArchitectureArticles Share ArchDaily “COPY” Save this picture!© Steve Keating Photography+ 19 Sharelast_img
