The ceilings are covered in unfinished fir, a type of wood that is very common on the west coast of Canada.

The kitchen has a combination of wood for the warmth, and white for keeping it bright.

The original house is a post-and-beam aesthetic done in concrete. It sits on a sloping site, and terraces down four levels, ending with a beautiful pond.
