The Wave House modern-entry
 

The Wave House

Situated on a challenging sloped lot, an elegant and modern home was achieved with a focus on warm walnut, stainless steel, glass and concrete. Each floor, named Sand, Sea, Surf and Sky, is connected by a floating walnut staircase and an elevator concealed by walnut paneling in the entrance.

The home captures the expansive and serene views of the ocean, with spaces outdoors that incorporate water and fire elements. Ease of maintenance and efficiency was paramount in finishes and systems within the home. Accents of Swarovski crystals illuminate the corridor leading to the master suite and add sparkle to the lighting throughout.

A sleek and functional kitchen was achieved featuring black walnut and charcoal gloss millwork, also incorporating a concealed pantry and quartz surfaces. An impressive wine cooler displays bottles horizontally over steel and walnut, spanning from floor to ceiling.

Features were integrated that capture the fluid motion of a wave and can be seen in the flexible slate on the contoured fireplace, Modular Arts wall panels, and stainless steel accents. The foyer and outer decks also display this sense of movement.

At only 22 feet in width, and 4300 square feet of dramatic finishes, a four car garage that includes additional space for the client's motorcycle, the Wave House was a productive and rewarding collaboration between the client and KBC Developments.

Featured in Homes & Living Vancouver magazine July 2012!

It is black basalt tile.
We sourced it through Hari Stone locally here in Vancouver.

This is a custom door designed by KBC Developments specifically for this project.

You should contact a local door supplier and manufacturer to help configure what suits your project specifically.

The door handle was a custom installation in marine grade stainless steel,
made by Metallica Manufacturing in Burnaby, BC.
Important to use the marine grade steel in any seaside application as in this one to avoid the corrosion that very quickly ensues on other finishes!

We did install artificial turf here!
A great low maintenance solution that looks great - it is a long ways from the turf we saw as kids on our neighbour's decks!

Hi There, this is a beautiful home you have developed. I was wondering if you could tell me what the deck railing is made out of? Thanks.

The deck railing is anodized aluminum and stainless steel cabling.
Being in a seaside location, finishes have to be chosen wisely so you don't have corrosion from the salt in the air.
Hope that helps!

As this home is built on a steep slope overlooking the ocean, it is a multi-level home, with living and entrance on the top level, and garage opening to lane on the bottom level.

The sandblasted concrete slabs were all formed and poured in place.
The form edge is critical in creating crisp, sharp edges on the slabs.
Sorry for our delayed response - hope that helps!

It is an artificial turf product by Dupont.

Obviously, very low maintenance for clients that are often on the go - which was the goal here!
It looks amazing - most visitors reach down and touch it as it looks so real.
Turf products have come a long ways!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

1. This is a tremendously well-detailed home. Nothing about this project, from top to bottom, is poorly considered. Multiple materials come together with a symphonic result — this is not easy to do. A considerable amount of work and thought goes into a project to make it simple and clean.My favorite detail in this project (which probably goes most unnoticed) may be the small recess where the exterior wall and the roof connect, creating a shadow line that emphasizes the floating nature of the roof. Had the recess been too small or too large, or had the fascia been too thick or too thin, this detail would have failed.
