The Whistler Cay Residence by a|k|a architecture

October 20, 2008

Located in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada is this 5000 sq. ft. mountain home designed by a|k|a architecture & Design.

From the architects:

The contemporary design incorporates the vernacular materials of the typical Whistler mountain home but applies them in a modern language with clean and simple gestures that are at once bold yet subtle.  The house asserts its presence on the street yet respectfully refers to its context through its warm use of timber, stone and natural cedar wood siding.  The grand living spaces feature expansive glass windows that open up to views beyond.  Secondary spaces offer smaller framed views while securing privacy from nearby houses.
