BUNTZEN BAY RESIDENCE 1
Preserving the natural beauty of this rustic tree-covered coastline along Indian Arm was a crucial factor for the homeowner in designing a home on this steep slope overlooking Bunzten Bay. To minimize environmental disruption on-site, this home was designed as independent modules which were placed onto pedestals above the landscape. The design team was also careful to avoid cutting existing mature trees. Additional structural bracing and lateral load supports were required for shipping and lifting which will be removed during the final phase of construction. Check out the video in the Further Reading section below, for the exciting journey of this home from prefabrication in Richmond to its perch above beautiful Buntzen Bay, British Columbia.
