W O V E N Architecture and Design has created this stunning modern house overlooking Sakinaw Lake, one of the largest lakes on the Sunshine Coast, just two hours northwest of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The 3,060-square-foot lake house is sited on a platform carved from a steep rocky slope with mesmerizing views of the lake.

A carport located above the house serves as the point of arrival which leads to an outdoor stair descending down to the upper floor where the main entrance is located. The home consists of 2 rectangular volumes staggered over one another revealing outdoor space on the roof of the lower floor. Bedrooms are located on the upper floor with living spaces below providing a connection to the water.

Floor-to-ceiling glass walls offer views of the lake on one side and the rock wall immediately behind the house on the other. Flush transitions with materials extending from inside to outside dissolve the division between interior and exterior.
