The natural world, in the form of lush plants, cedar paneling and with contrasting oak cabinetry and flooring, balances the crisp lines of this North Vancouver home by Garret Werner, principal of Garret Cord Werner Architects and Interior Designers. “Our philosophy is always to embrace the land and its surroundings,” says Werner. “I believe design should be alive.”
To wit: a living wall lit by a run of skylights above and fed by a timed waterline integrated into the ceiling. Across the room, Infinity glass windows replace a traditional backsplash, supplying views of the side yard planted with cascading Poaceae; a greenhouse effect of an altogether different sort.
