Echo Beach modern-entry
 

Echo Beach

With a clear connection between the home and the Pacific Ocean beyond, this modern dwelling provides a west coast retreat for a young family. Forethought was given to future green advancements such as being completely solar ready and having plans in place to install a living green roof. Generous use of fully retractable window walls allow sea breezes to naturally cool living spaces which extend into the outdoors. Indoor air is filtered through an exchange system, providing a healthier air quality. Concrete surfaces on floors and walls add strength and ease of maintenance. Personality is expressed with the punches of colour seen in the Italian made and designed kitchen and furnishings within the home. Thoughtful consideration was given to areas committed to the clients’ hobbies and lifestyle.

The orange you see is actually the wood siding on the exterior entrance to the home.

Wall - How was this terrific concrete wall constructed? Was it poured all at once or poured in stages?

I love this wall, love the up lighting which just emphasizes the fantastic texture! This look like a poured in place concrete wall which is what inspired our concrete board form tile. If you want to achieve this look you would have to have a wall poured in place and most likely done at time of construction. Wood forms are used to make wall molds and then the concrete is poured into the mold. When the forms are taken off you are left with the beautiful texture and color variation from the wood.

Our concrete board form tile will give you this look and is easily installed by any tile setter or DIY. Each tile is unique, there will be no repeat pattern of any kind which adds to the authentic poured in place look. See the attached pics of our tile installed.

We ship worldwide, contact me for more info if you are interested. We also carry wall panel that look like the coned concrete walls that are so popular. lise@2stone.ca

The wall on the right is concrete.
The forming technique is called board form.
Using a series of wood boards in the forming process allows the wood grain and the widths of the boards to be imprinted into the concrete.
Originally this was an early way to form walls.
It has become an architectural finish to concrete walls, and looks specatular with uplighting

If you are looking at the floors, below is a description of the product we used at this project.

ARDEX SD-M™, a single component system made of polymer and cementitious powders. This was applied over radiant heated concrete.
See more photos on our website www.kbcdevelopments.com!

Also, System One Floors did the installation, so check their site at http://systemonefloor.ca/concrete/portfolio/private-residence/ .

Solid backing needs to be provided in the stud wall at the drywall to baseboard intersection.
Baseboard and drywall are installed directly against the stud wall, and then a drywall Fry Reglet is placed between before drywall finishing.

Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Eric Reinholdt added this to Design Workshop: Cool Lighting Tricks
Uplight only. For pathways and circulation areas, it’s often suitable to provide only enough ambient light to get from here to there. Uplighting produces a relatively flat overall light, but washing a textured wall with soft streaks of light, as shown here, encourages movement and renders the wall surface an artful composition.
