Cliffhanger House

WINNER 2014 CHBA National SAM Award for the Best Custom Home under 2500 square feet

Situated on the steep south facing slopes (think a 25x100' lot with a drop of 65 feet in elevation!) of North Vancouver’s Indian Arm, the Cliffhanger Residence pays homage to the tenets of modern architecture while expressing a distinctly regional character to create a clean, contemporary West Coast aesthetic. The three-level home has a large portion of its floor plate pushed deep into the cliffside to maximize build-able floor area on a very tight building lot. The home is laid out on a simple open plan principle with the key day-to-day activity areas of kitchen, living and dining located on the intermediate level with unobstructed views to the water.

The home represents a regional adaptation to a modern aesthetic that allows it to straddle the seemingly incongruous worlds of a big city metropolis and rugged mountain landscape.
