Alta Vista Residence, Whistler BC

  • Client: Private Resident
  • Date Completed: 2010

This ‘Mountain Modern’ home was design to be built on modest budget yet capture the quality and character of a contemporary Whistler home.  CDD used simple roof forms and structural systems to stay true to the budget and the modern style.  Use of raw, yet durable materials such as stone, wood and metal fit well with the rugged setting and hold up to the demanding climate.  Creative massing and window placement take advantage of natural lighting.  A high efficiency wood fireplace with ducting to other rooms and floors reduces heating requirements in the winter, while natural convective air circulation keeps the home cool during the hot summer days.
