West Vancouver Contemporary, Open-Concept Renovation

These homeowners came to me with a nearly impossible request. They wanted to turn their traditional Tudor-style home into a contemporary open-concept space while maintaining the basic infrastructure.

Interest is created through the combination of the natural textures of wood & stone juxtaposed with glass, leather & steel, all providing a neutral backdrop to the sensational view which is equally spectacular both day & night.
