Remainder House

Bowen Island, BC

Size: 1,100 sq. ft.
Construction Value: $ .
Status: Completed

The Remainder House is a celebration of old growth timbers salvaged from a New Westminster warehouse. The house was carefully sited on a tight triangular shaped lot to frame a woodland garden, maintaining the existing trees, minimizing the visual impact to neighbors and maximizing Southern views over the water. All was achieved without removing a single existing tree.
