Gulf Islands Residence on Salt Spring Island British Columbia

The design of this Gulf Islands’ private residence responds to the Client’s brief for the creation of a ‘modern log cabin’ on a precious piece of ocean-front property.

The client was torn between the idea of the rustic Canadian log cabin and the desire for a modern villa. Through the use of a highly expressive structure, expanses of glass and a simple and minimal material palette, the project took this challenge as its fundamental concept, striving to reconcile the rustic with the modern in its form, materiality and organization.
