BlackCliff House presides over the Salish Sea, where the mountains rise from the water.
Located on Canada’s west coast, BlackCliff House combines a distinctly contemporary style with the strength of its connection to the nature that surrounds it. Perched on a granite rock rising 40m above the shoreline, the house accommodates diverse living arrangements while connecting to the site’s abundant natural character. It takes its cues from distinct and divergent topographical features: views and light to the southwest and the extreme contours that drop to the Salish Sea to the west.
Featuring stunning minimalist architecture, the geometric twist between the upper and lower floors creates opportunities for a series of void spaces in the middle of the structure, bringing light into the stairwells, courtyards, and shared spaces within the home. The uncompromising aesthetics of ah!38 birail and trirail solutions allows a deep connection to the outdoor environment without impairing either view or natural light.
Designed by McLeod Bovell Modern Houses (MBMH), the staggered geometric volumes, alternating exposed concrete and large panoramah! minimalist sliding doors and windows, make BlackCliff House a contemporary home that blends seamlessly into the landscape.
