An iconic canadian architectural monument perched upon a sprawling 67-acre oceanfront parcel at the southern end of Vancouver Island, minutes from British Columbias capital, Victoria. Punctuated by grand contemporary lines, the triumphant main residence is, according to its award-winning designer, Marko Simcic, sustainably entwined with its site in the heart of one of Canadas most endangered natural ecosystemsthe Garry Oak savannah. Winner of the Canadian Architect Award in 2003 and a Lieutenant-Governors Award in 2008, the 10,700 square foot main residence is cantilevered atop a concrete armature, rooting the structure clear of the critical tree root zones. With floors branching astride a canyon carrying spent hydro-thermal seawater framed by etched glass exterior walls, this innovative retreat blurs the boundaries of nature and shelter. (id:37253)
