This Gulf Island residence is the perfect getaway from Vancouver's urban pace. Luxury without excess, every square foot maximizes the use of space. A grand family room centres the design with the kitchen and dining room flanking one side and bedrooms on the other. Designed for life by the ocean, its corrugated metal and glass exterior are built to withstand the salt and wind; while inside, subtle details like the kitchen's shimmering marble backsplash pick up on the ephemeral light from ocean waves. Designed by Bruce Haden.
