Minimalist concrete floor pivot front door photo in Vancouver with a glass front door

Echo Beach

Modern Entry, Vancouver

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. photography by

    Not certain on what you are referring to - but the drywall is painted white (left), the right wall is boardform concrete, and the floor is a custom colour made specifically for this home.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for your interest!
