Modifications to this 1950s post-and-beam house attempt to mediate between the forest and ocean harbor while providing a backdrop for the display of art and sculpture.

A small start can sometimes give way to larger ambitions. Take Scott Coats, cabinetmaker and owner of Fusion Woodwork. What began as a modest shop in a rented Vancouver garage has grown into a full-service custom cabinet and millwork operation that employs the latest high-tech machinery. “Our focus has always been on higher quality and greater efficiency through technology,” Coats explains. It seems his investment paid off. The expansion has enabled him to create bespoke cabinetry for high-profile clients like Lamoureux Architect Inc.

Project superintendent Chris Kleaman and his team at WoodRose Homes know Vancouver inside and out. And no wonder. The company has been building custom homes in the region for more than 20 years, including nearly a dozen designed by Lamoureux Architect Incorporated. “We have truly enjoyed every project with them, as each one brings an extraordinary level of uniqueness,” says Kleaman. “This allows us to continually push the envelope of great building and deliver exceptional luxury residences.”

"Our client wished to add a new master suite to this existing 1950s post-and-beam at the foot of the North Shore Mountains, and to modernize the home’s style. Apart from building on the steep and rocky terrain, it was challenging to create a grand sense of space with very little space, and to balance the desire for views with proper display space and lighting for a substantial art collection.”

"This house is designed around a water courtyard and outdoor pool with a negative edge. We sought to reinforce the connection between inside and outside living with floor-to-ceiling walls of glass. In all principal rooms, the walls of glass slide away to completely open the inside and out.”
