Tula house is situated on a cliffside, 44 feet above the pPacific waterfront, Canadian-based Patkau architects have completed the Tula house located on the remote Quadra Island in British Columbia. The residence’s design seeks to reference a connection to its diverse surrounding landscape through a variety of means. Most notably, living spaces feature wide panoramas toward ocean below, while concrete and vegetated walls remind of the rocky and forested setting. On its exterior, the structure visually blends with the wooded context by through its moss-covered roof. Additionally, the topography has been manipulated to control groundwater flow through the site, while being momentarily captured in the courtyard’s pond.
