This Vancouver home’s architecture is strongly integrated into the landscape. The lines from the home’s vertical elements extend into the garden, with a start and stop that create interest at the entry. The path into the private inner courtyard almost feels like an interior experience. The courtyard sanctuary, with an outdoor fireplace, blends the indoor and outdoor experience, a hallmark of Garret Cord Werner’s design philosophy.

The home’s separate pavilions are connected by lower walkways. This separation of living space breaks down the home into a pleasing scale and allows the home to blend into the neighborhood in a non-imposing manner while maintaining a strong presence of style and sophistication.
