Patio - modern courtyard patio idea in Vancouver

Echo Beach

Modern Patio, 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

    The lighting is attached with eyelet bolts to the cement wall and plugged in at the roof of the house.
    We had prepared the electrical to accommodate Christmas/seasonal lights.
