Sitting upon on a steep rock face in a residential area to the north of Whistler village, this breath taking cabin was designed by Scott & Scott Architects.
With a neighbourhood that consists of similar sized A-frame and Gothic arch cabins and chalets, Scott & Scott designed the cabin around the owners and their desire to work with the original scale of the early structures in the area.
The A-frame structure of the home is made from locally sourced Douglas fir, which is seen throughout the entire interior of the building and rests upon a concrete base.
The materials are locally harvested and quarried," explained the architects. "The exterior is clad in red cedar shakes, which will weather to the tone of the surrounding rock, the interior cabinetry was site-built by the carpenters with construction grade rotary-cut plywood, and the counters were fabricated from marble from the Hisnet Inlet quarry located on Vancouver Island.
