The bright and cozy Forest House near Vancouver in Canada

Private and inviting, opening towards the harmonic forest in the back, the Forest House in Canada is no different from an oasis of happiness built with relaxation in mind.

Situated near Vancouver, a beautiful coastal seaport city on the mainland of British Columbia, Canada, the bright and cozy Forest House designed by Garret Cord Werner is known as a stylish private family residence where the architecture is interrupted by marvellous surrounding natural landscapes. According to the architect, “The home was built for $280 per sq/ft in 2011. Over 20 ft. high concrete walls frame the dramatic entry into the home that features a floating open riser staircase.

The home was designed to maximize light and to make one feel as much a part of the forest surrounding the home as possible. Oversized sliding glass doors and clear story windows are used to reinforce this inside-out relationship to the garden. Upstairs, a signature feature of our work is what we call a sky garden.
