Designing a Luxury Modern West Coast House

Updated: Dec 31

Evolution of Residential Design

The process of luxury home design begins before anything is drawn as I explain in my article "Your Architect Needs To Do These FOUR Things Before Drawing ANYTHING", but inspiration is a powerful drug that can motivate you and help you establish what your direction will be - what you like. As a modern house architect, I can use advanced visualization software to explore a variety of ideas without spending much time on particulars.


The intent of this exercise is not to create a specific design; the conceptual images are not tied - nor necessarily well-suited - to any particular context illustrated. Some images may show some unresolved software artifacts, but each is a "loose sketch" of a sort to generate a look and feel.


Modern home design tends to rely on flat roofs and clean, horizontal lines. Luxury home design typically features large windows and often a water feature.

Are you inspired to build your own modern house in the lower mainland (or anywhere else in British Columbia, really)? Perhaps you're considering a net zero home to weather the extreme weather in Canada.
