Scott & Scott Architects completed North Vancouver Residence, a rustic renovation of a 1950s publish-and-beam residence in Canada. The undertaking is the result of a collaboration amongst the architect and the consumer, two historical past professors, and their shared curiosity in standard buildings and resources.
“The home, while extensively renovated above the many years, had a modest scale, effectively-proportioned rooms and a sturdy connection to the wooded and mature yard,” the architect explained. The supplies used in the upgrade had been picked for their contrasting strengths and minimalist finishes.
“The residing area was stripped of embellishments, and the enclosed stair was replaced with an open stair of steel and fir,” the architect stated. “This permits the light from the 2nd-floor hall window to connect with the ground floor.”
The proprietor’s collection of studio pottery is the highlight of the minimalist rustic kitchen. A 1,760-pound marble counter sits atop a custom-developed base.
The area on the primary floor is divided by two substantial plywood cabinets, which supply concealed storage for the residing, entry and kitchen areas. [Images and details courtesy of Scott & Scott Architects]
