Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
This home located in Vancouver, Canada. It is an architecture showcase piece from D’Arcy Jones Architecture Inc, located in Vancouver. This is a residential home and is not for sale. The location is approximate.
This volumetric house wraps itself around a series of four courtyards, varying in size and orientation. Designed to emphasize a contemporary Canadian art collection, the courtyards also allow light and air deep into the house’s interior, while shielding the occupants from road noise. Materials and finishes flow inside to outside, creating a dramatic series of spaces that sculpt the site’s soft Vancouver light.

“Our studio enthusiastically approaches each new project as a chance to create something unique. Playing with materials and form to come up with unexpected results, we work tirelessly to design projects that are innovative, durable and inviting. Tweaking time-tested ways of building, we create buildings and spaces that can be still be built with conventional construction methods.
We are optimists, seeing the past as a continuum to connect with and be inspired by, and seeing the future as something that can be improved incrementally.”
