This modern residence listed by Jamie J. MacDougall made me think of Scandinavian design in the scenic Northern islands. But the real location of The Pender Harbour House is in British Columbia, Canada, on a generously-sized lot of 613 square meters. With extensive views of the natural shoreline and neighboring forest, the residence is an oasis of tranquility for its inhabitants. Its jaw-dropping purchasing price of $20 million hints the project’s opulence and modern features.
Built in 2011 from scratch, the residence was equipped with state-of-the-art amenities: “Exposed architectural reinforced concrete walls are combined with Pennsylvania Blue Stone floors and Douglas Fir beams inside to create a delicate warmth to host the main residence with 6 fully en-suited bedrooms. Each bedroom enjoys total privacy, 180-degree breathtaking views and its own access outdoors“. I must say I am not too thrilled about the cost-benefits relationship when it comes to this project, but the location is truly breathtaking.
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
