Vancouver Residence

Vancouver, Canada | Architect: Miller Hull | Completion Date:

Located in Vancouver Island's Cadboro Bay neighborhood, the Spindrift Residence's two-and-a-half acre site has spectacular waterfront views of Haro Strait and San Juan Island. Designed for a family of four, the floor plan spreads out, primarily on one level, giving each room exposure to the views. The house tucks into the slope of the site reducing the overall mass from the street front. The angle of the custom roof trusses at the pool and bedrooms is designed to optimize southern exposure for roof-mounted solar hot water tubes which heat the swimming pool and domestic hot water. Additional environmental strategies include passive natural ventilation, abundant day-lighting, geothermal and radiant heating, combined with triple glazed windows throughout the home.
