McLeod Bovell Modern Houses – Sunset Drive, West Vancouver

McLeod Bovell Modern Houses – Sunset Drive, West Vancouver

AMG designed and manufactures a complete custom curtain-wall package for this great project by McLeod Bovell Modern Houses. To maximize the views the designers had incorporated a wide multi-track sliding door, which AMG designed and manufactures as well. From McLeod Bovell: “Situated on a steep and technically challenging site, this single family home was designed to capture views of the outer harbor and heavy marine traffic along the jagged West Vancouver coastline. The home’s irregular shape traces the site boundary, coming to an angled blinder that provides privacy from tight adjacent properties. A natural, minimalist palate of raw concrete, steel, leather, and wood creates a calm interior space that doesn’t distract from the framed ocean view beyond. Movement into the house is carefully choreographed to disguise the considerable elevation change from street to living space – no individual stair run is greater than 1/2 story, allowing an unobstructed sightline from the oversized pivot entrance door through to the terrace. Similarly, the split level arrangement allows for generous volumes in the main living spaces and a closer connection between upper and main floor, while also providing dramatic elements such as the 40-foot elevation drop from the suspended deck and plunge pool to the rear garden below.”
