    Award Winning Design

    An iconic Canadian architectural monument perched upon a sprawling 67-acre oceanfront parcel at the southern end of Vancouver Island, minutes from British Columbia’s capital, Victoria. Punctuated by grand contemporary lines, the triumphant main residence is, according to it’s award-winning designer, Marko Simcic, “sustainably entwined” with its site in the heart of one of Canada’s most endangered natural ecosystems—the Garry Oak savannah.

    Winner of the Canadian Architect Award in 2003 and a Lieutenant-Governor’s Award in 2008, the 10,700 square foot main residence is cantilevered atop a concrete armature, rooting the structure clear of the critical tree root zones. With floors branching astride a canyon carrying spent hydrothermal seawater framed by etched glass exterior walls, this innovative retreat blurs the boundaries of nature and shelter.

    A sharp structural fold encloses an exterior pool and hot tub area which separates the master and guest quarters. Dynamically lit by strategically placed exterior and foot windows, reflections from the ocean and canyon river dance across hardwood floors and travertine walls.

    Panoramic views of 1,400 linear feet of shoreline and private beach are amplified by spectacular ocean views backed by the rugged Olympic Mountain range. A boat house integrated into the structure, with mechanical launch directly to the sea makes setting sail a breeze, while worldwide access to home automation controls allows residents to remain connected from afar. Also included on the gated property is a caretakers residence, a garage with hydraulic lift, and a tennis/basketball court.
