Example of a minimalist concrete floor and gray floor hallway design in Vancouver

Echo BeachModern Hall, 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 www.robcampbellphotography.com

    I love the normal white walls and the minimal skirting boards that are flush. I have been looking everywhere for a minimal but practical skirting board.
    Can you please give details on the skirting boards?.

    These are Whiskey River polished pebbles in black.
    You can get them through our supplier
    www.landscapesupply.com

    The pebbles lay in a trough made at the time of a construction.
    If you don't have the ability to sink a trough down into the floor, you would have to have a raised trough for them to sit in.

    In the photo above, the floor is concrete with a decorative cement based coating called ARDEX SD-M.
    It can be customized to achieve the look you are trying to achieve, whether in a residential or commercial space.

    This floor has a specific shade made up for the client, which allows them to specify if they want it lighter or darker, more blue or more gray, and so on.

    Samples are specifically developed for approval on each project, allowing it to be suited to the design, aesthetic and environment of the home.

    System One Floors helped us on this project.
    Contact Kevin at www.systemonefloor.ca
    for more details.

    Thanks for your interest!

Loves these walls. Are they tile or reclaimed wood

  • Sam Dewick
    Great work on this. I am always a fan of raw looking finishes that still looks very modern and tasteful. The river rocks is a curious touch of creativity! (For anyone interested, we supply river rocks tile !)

    Thanks - we like the organic nature concrete can add to a home.
    And also, it's very low maintenance!

    The wall on the left 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, and is used here as an architectural finish. Completed with river rocks in a trough at the bottom of the wall and up lighting to highlight the finish.

    The same structural wall is seen on the floor above in the entry.

    We believe it was BM Decorators White.

    The trim was all custom work done on site for this project, as with many features in our homes.
    The wall to the left is a concrete board form wall that is also part of the structure of the house, and spans more than one level. Adds an interesting dimension and texture to the space.

    Can you tell me a bit about the wall on the left? It is in the shadow, but appears to be a light grey color, almost like a driftwood. I would love to know how to achieve that color. This is beautiful! Thanks in advance.

    That is simply a recessed baseboard. A little more labor intensive than a regular baseboard, but not terribly. You do need to hire someone who knows what he's doing, especially in corners with the 45° cuts. You can use metal reveal profiles, or plastic reveal profiles in different shapes. We used a 1/2" channel in our last project:

    Absolutely. Please consult with a contractor to ensure the existing home structure can bear the weight of concrete first. The photo above features a structural wall that spans a few levels of the home with a boardform finish. In a renovation you may have a faux finish placed instead like what Randy Orr can do for you.
