St. Georges by Randy Bens Architect in Vancouver, Canada
Located in West Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada, the St. Georges is a home that was designed by Randy Bens Architect. The building itself is a very long, carved rectangle that captures a stunning westward view.
The house was designed around the idea of a covered, exterior living space which is open to the view and morning light through a glazed clerestory window band. The exterior design of this home as well as the stunning surrounding environment is what makes it worth seeing and remembering.
From the architects: “On the east side, the floor plate is indented in 3 places which brings the landscape in, and provide relief to the flat facade. The roof is a simple extrusion, made asymmetrical by the vaulted living spaces. The vaulted roofs are represented by an open rafter, and contain the living spaces. The the trussed roofs are represented by a flat soffit, and contain support spaces. The muted exterior materials are concrete, wood and metal.”
