West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Designed in 1964, this mid-century rancher overlooking the Howe Sound underwent extensive renovations. Christian Woo worked closely with the homeowner to create impactful design features throughout the house. The centerpiece of the home is a 24 foot free standing kitchen tower, which serves to create two distinct areas; the kitchen on the south side and the entrance on the north, while discreetly housing all integrated appliances and work areas. A custom louvered screen enhances this distinction without obstructing viewpoints and allowing natural light to travel throughout the house. On the main level an open concept study shares the same detailing.
